Grant success for new boroughs project

Apollo Music Projects has been awarded a grant by the Golden Bottle Trust/Bulldog Trust Joint Funding Initiative, one of only three successful organisations out of 276 applicants. The grant is towards the setting up of three hubs of four primary schools each in Camden, Islington, Haringey and Waltham Forest over the next two years. We are looking forward to working with the Trust on this very exciting project.

Support a School programme launched

We have launched a Support a School programme, inviting supporters or groups of supporters to match the schools’ contribution of £1000 per school. We have already matched four schools, and are hoping to find supporters to match the remaining schools. For more information and a list of schools click here.
