A Monumental Chance

djembe 4

Starting from the 2nd of September, Lloyds are running a community funding campaign that will allow local causes and businesses to improve the quality of their services and reach out to more people in the area. How successful one of these organisations are in the funding campaign depends upon a voting system, in which the general public can vote.

The organisations involved will all receive funds, but the organisations with more votes will receive a larger amount of funding to invest into the community and their projects. Monumental Music CIC (The Bunker) would use this funding to provide fun and captivating workshops as well as music provisions for people who are disadvantaged and need extra social support.

Liam Huitson, Music Business Co-Ordinator at The Bunker shared his opinions about the funding campaign:

The Lloyds community funding campaign is a great opportunity for us here at The Bunker, with the funding we can put on more workshops of a higher quality for the community. Which will be beneficial to a lot of people in the area.

The Bunker needs your help and votes to obtain more funding for projects that will benefit the local community. The more funding The Bunker is awarded, the better the opportunities and projects The Bunker can provide. The workshops and projects will give people the chance to interact socially with others and gain musical experience, and this is very important. Furthermore the funding will give The Bunker the means to reach out to more people in the community that may not be familiar with The Bunker and the work they do in and around the local area.

There are four local causes in the area that will receive funding, the awards are as follows: £3000, £2000, £1000 and £500.

You can submit your vote online, via Twitter, via SMS or in your local Lloyds Branch.

Peter Brewis, Field Music

“Sunderland owes a great deal to the Bunker. Not just because of the bands it has helped to nurture. Well known bands reveal only a fraction of the important work that the bunker does. The work the bunker does is truly invaluable and our City cannot do without it!
