Dear Headteacher / Music Coordinator

Join Sense on Friday 1st July for Drumathon 2011

Help Sense Create the BIGGEST BANG EVER!  Get involved in Drumathon 2011 and help raise awareness and funds for Deafblind children and adults across the UK.

Sense - the UK’s leading charity for people with dual sensory loss – is hosting the PARTY OF THE YEAR… and we’d love you to be a part of this groundbreaking event, bringing Deafblind Awareness Week to an unforgettable close!

SENSEWhat is Drumathon?
Drumathon will be a wonderful sensory overload for all involved.  We aim to have over 10,000 people drumming the same rhythm and raising vital funds for those people who have dual sensory loss.  We hope your pupils will make a real effort in creating imaginative drumming equipment from everyday household objects to carnivalesque explosions of rhythm and colour! 

On Friday 1st July we would love people everywhere to stop and thinking for just a few minutes about the value of sight and sound and what better way of communicating this, than by banging it loud across the nation!

An Extra Incentive!
Sense will be happy to share some of the fundraising with each school that goes out of its way to help us reach out to deafblind people…
You can choose whether you would like the total money raised to be split: 20% can be retained by the school to spend however you wish, 80% used by Sense to enrich the lives of deafblind people and their families.  We suggest a minimum donation of £2 per pupil. 

So, come on, get involved!
