A short animation showing how our charity works.

As part of the Patagonia Instrument Project's ongoing development we are now supporting those with a passion for music here in Wales as well as Patagonia.  We have recently donated ten violins and violas to Islwyn High School to enable them to start a string group for Year 7 pupils.

We have also donated seven three-quarter size violins to Montgomeryshire Youth Music in Powys with a further ten

to be sent very soon.

On St David's day we launched our new appeal to raise £1,500 for a Teifi Harp to be sent to the Gaiman School of Music so they can expand their teaching to the local bilingual secondary school.  

To reach the target, alongside cash donations we sell any donated instruments that are either too large or not good enough to send to Patagonia.  We also have an Ebay site where current listings include a drum-kit, a violin case, some earrings and a pair of shoes!

Early this year the Arcos String Group in Esquel, Chubut were

able to buy twenty new chairs with funds provided by the Patagonia Instrument Project.  We sent them a load of instruments last year so they can now finally sit for rehearsals!

The children at Ysgol y Cym in Trevelin, Patagonia, were very grateful for our donation to arts-based purchases.  As well

as sending musical instruments from Wales and supplying them from local music shops in Patagonia, we also send

donations directly to be spent whichever way each organisation sees fit.

Earlier this year the total value of donations received and instruments sent to Patagonia reached the £20,000 mark.  

A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed and

supported us since we started in April 2016.  

The children at Ysgol Gymraeg y Gaiman are very

grateful to you all, diolch!
