If you have an unwanted musical instrument we want to hear from you! There are many different schemes you can donate your instrument to.
One aim of our project is to provide links here to organisations in different parts of Europe that may be useful to you. Please contact them directly to arrange donations, and come back to us if you would like to take part in research around donations.
