Help keep the music playing

A CHARITY shop in Henley is asking residents to donate their old musical instruments.

People can drop off unused instruments at the Oxfam book and music shop in Duke Street, where they will be donated to children who are keen to learn but do not have the resources to do so.

It is part of a nationwide “instrument amnesty” launched by classical pianist James Rhodes and will coincide with a two-part Channel 4 series called Don’t Stop the Music.

Shop manager Sabine Adams said: “As the only shop in Henley stocking a wide range of sheet music for all instruments, we are thrilled to be helping James with his instrument amnesty.

“I’d ask anyone in Henley and the surrounding villages who has an unwanted instrument to drop it off at our shop. Your instrument could help inspire a new generation of musicians.”
