BUDDING SOLIHULL musicians will able to face the music thanks to a regional grant giving charity.

M.A.D House, a youth community club which runs classes in arts and crafts, dance and sports games, will now be able to offer music classes after receiving a £1,500 grant from the Heart of England Community Foundation.

In the coming months, youngsters aged between 11 and 18 years in the Chelmsley Wood, Kingshurst and Fordbridge areas will be able to hone their skills in DJ’ing, music and songwriting.

The donation was part of the Foundation’s latest round of grants which saw a total of more than £12,000 distributed amongst deserving local projects in the last month.

The Foundation, which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, receives money from a range of organisation who wish to see their donations invested back into the area, with the Foundation’s panel dividing the money between community projects they believe will make a positive impact in their area.

Tina Costello, Director of the Heart of England Community Foundation, said: “We are delighted to be providing funding for so many inspiring and worthy groups and projects across Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull, that we know will make a vast difference to their local area.

Other projects that received grants include a sports event day, a community art project, and provisions for the building of a food bank service.

Tina added: “Although our grants can be relatively small at between £500 and £2,000, they can often have big results and our benefactors love that they are able to see exactly how their money has helped communities.”
