Who do we donate to?
All schools, charities and organizations where we work, with no or very limited drumming/percussion equipment qualify for a donation.
Why do we donate?
Drumming for Drums donates to schools because we believe everyone in education should be able to have the opportunity to play the drums, regardless of their background or the school’s existing facilities. We are passionate about the subject and feel a need to spread our enthusiasm and knowledge to benefit both pupils and schools across the country.
A charitable donation is made to each and every school we work in for a minimum of two terms, up to a maximum value of £300, this allows for the purchase of a very useful range of equipment.
Please note: Donations are NOT made in cash. We only donate Djembe Drums and percussion instruments.
We only donate to schools or organisations that hire our services for two terms or longer (10 week minimum)
As you may have previously read, we donate Drums and percussion instruments to schools that hire our services for a term or longer. Here are some photos of some of the donations made so far.
Donations made to schools
Willesborough Infant School,
St Ethelberts Catholic Primary School, Ramsgate.
At the start of 2015, Drumming for Drums was asked to come back to Willesborough Infant School and run a short course of after school music clubs.
The drum circle music club has been so popular that we have been asked to come back for a second and third term!
As Willesborough Infant School had decided to keep Drumming for Drums on for a second and third term, we decided to increase the donation that we awarded the school with at the end of the academic year.
Our donation seems to fit in nicely among the other African drums. Now Willesborough Infant school have a wide selection of drums and percussion for their pupils to play on!
At the start of 2015, Drumming for Drums was asked to come in to teach the year 2 and year 3 students of St Ethelberts Catholic Primary school.
During our time at St Ethelberts, pupils were taught about the history and origins of the Djembe, playing techniques, traditional rhythm learning and playing together as a group. We also started to incorporate aspects of literacy and numeracy with the year 2 group. We created rhythms out of sentences and worked with syllables as beats. Lots of fun!
St Ethelberts Catholic Primary School hired our services for one term and this is the donation they received!
