Making a Donation of Instruments and Music
Musical instruments are extremely expensive in Kenya and are out of reach for most individuals playing in Salvation Army bands. Since the early days of The Kenya Trust’s existence, shipments of donated instruments have been sent to support the growth of Salvation Army bands in the country.
The Kenya Trust can arrange for collection of bulk instruments from most places within the mainland UK, please send us an email to discuss collection options. Single instruments can be sent to the trust again, please get in touch to discuss the best option. The trust then repair and refurbish these donated instruments before they are shipped to Kenya and distributed to corps (Churches) around the country. Instruments in any state of repair are welcome as we can reclaim unplayable ones for spares. Even empty cases are welcome. If an instrument is considered beyond reasonable repair or of a type not used in Kenya then the trust may sell them in the UK and put the proceeds towards the shipping costs of other instruments.
The cost of sending instruments to Kenya has risen dramatically in recent times and particularly during the COVID crisis. The average cost to send an instrument is £45. Any donations to help with these costs would be gratefully received.
IF you would like to donate any instruments old or new or any music (preferably Salvation Army band tune books), lyres, mutes, and stands please contact us via email at [email protected]
