HEART N SOUL APPEAL - Make a donation, make a difference...
“Heart n Soul gives me the freedom to express myself” Lizzie Emeh
This year, Heart n Soul artists performed in front of millions worldwide at the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games...
When Lizzie Emeh sang to a crowd of 80,000 in the Olympic Stadium, it was a moment when people all over the country could feel proud. She showed the world what she was capable of, and that’s what Heart n Soul has always been about.
2012 has been an amazing year for the artists we support and develop. With our help, thousands of people joined in with our work and discovered their potential.
In 2013 we need to reach many more. But we simply can’t do this without your help.
People with learning disabilities have an extremely difficult and uncertain future ahead. The changes in how people are supported mean that many will lose much of the care they need. They face far more time alone, some will become seriously isolated and withdrawn from everyday life.
A donation of just £10, will make a very real difference, it will help give people with learning disabilities the chance to get together, create amazing art and share what they can do with the world.
Heart n Soul artists Charles and Dean from The Fish Police have recorded a special song to say thank you to those who donate. Let us know your email address when you donate and we’ll send you a link to download this exclusive track.
