ted raise £10,000 for Nordoff Robbins

News & Stories

We are very proud to have raised £10,000 for the UK’s largest independent music therapy charity, Nordoff Robbins.

Our fundraising efforts have included competing in the 2019 London Triathlon, holding our own Lunchtime Live session, baking the tastiest cakes, wearing our favourite band T-shirts to work, and our first volunteer events as part of Get Loud.

Nordoff Robbins supports thousands of people in care homes, schools and hospitals, using music to enrich the lives of those with life-limiting illnesses, disabilities and feelings of isolation.

They work hard to bring the benefits of music therapy to as many people as possible, and we are very proud to be supporting them on their inspirational mission.

“Here at ted, music is our passion, it’s in our DNA and central to the entertainment experiences we create,” Anna Breese-Davies, ted Director, said.

“However for some people, music isn’t just entertainment, it is their lifeline. Nordoff Robbins is an amazing charity which helps people connect and that means the world to us at ted.”

The cheque was presented to Nordoff Robbins’ Director of Fundraising Hannah Sheedy and Head of Partnerships Sandy Trappitt after a presentation at tedHQ with Music Therapist Joe Jezard.

The session highlighted the benefit of musical engagement across different age groups and settings, and ended with some musical participation from our team.

Hannah Sheedy, Director of Fundraising at Nordoff Robbins, said: “We’re really grateful to ted for their generous support.

“It was an absolute pleasure to visit tedHQ to meet the team, and talk about our exciting plans for 2020 and beyond.

“Our aim is to make music therapy more accessible and this money will help us bring the vital benefits of our work to even more people affected by life-limiting illness, disability or isolation.”
