Charity scoops Demonstrating Digital award

Drake Music Scotland has been named as the Demonstrating Digital award winner at the 2017 Scottish Charity Awards.

Organised annually by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), the Awards celebrate the work that people within charities and community groups do every day, all over the country, to help those in need and raise awareness of important causes.

Drake Music Scotland believes everyone should have an equal opportunity to make music, and are the nation’s leading disability music organisation. Since 1997 they have created opportunities for over 13,000 children and adults with disabilities to play music, and one of the first organisations to help disabled people use iPads as musical instruments.

On receiving the award, Pete Sparkes, Artistic Director said: “Thank you so much for this amazing award that recognises our pioneering work finding digital solutions to support disabled people to make music independently. None of this would be possible without the dedication of our staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to remove barriers to music making for everyone.”
