Otakar Kraus Music Trust

“Thank you for all you do, OKMT, it is making such a difference to my daughter” 

OKMT continued to serve every part of the local community during the Covid-19 lockdown, supporting over 200 people with additional needs through online music sessions.

Now our OK Music School lessons have restarted face-to-face with safety precautions for over 60 children and young people with disabilities helping them flourish. Music Club for younger children has returned to Skylarks Charity in smaller groups to help children explore sound and movement.

Our inclusive OK Youth Choir remains online for now, bringing a shared positive activity. Our online music therapy groups for elderly clients of Homelink Respite Centre, for clients of INS with neurological difficulties and for clients of Richmond Borough Mind with mental health issues, continue to provide a vital lifeline for the mental well-being of people particularly affected by the Covid-19 restrictions.

You can change lives by making a donation today to help us to carry on our efforts and make a difference to even more disabled or isolated people of all ages who are affected by Covid-19. Every donation, large or small, will be used to help excluded people to communicate, gain confidence and share bonds with others.

Thank you very much!
