There is a process to go through with piano donations - as we need to make an assessment of each instrument and understand each unique story & situation of a piano and it's donor. We cannot make any promises about taking your piano, though we will do our best to find it a new home where we can. We are also increasingly swamped with offers ~ so we may take a wee bit of time to respond to your initial offer. Please use the contact form here to tell us any and all relevant info about your piano and situation. If you need to contact us at short notice you can call our Project Coordinator on 07940224365. There is a lot of important info for us to collect for each potential piano donation and we ask that you fill out the contact form as fully as possible. Thank you.
Every piano we receive has a unique story to tell about it's life up to now & what lies ahead. Last year's arrival at David Cargill House of a lovely Bechstein ~ replacing the Eavestaff that was well beyond it's playable life ~ seemed to instantly lift the spirits of some residents as Jessie ( resident pianist ) sat down to give us all a tune. Like most of the others, the story of this donation is a chain of emails, phone calls, piano moves & accidental connections made at fortuitous moments. Thanks to: Susan Christie for her initial piano request, Alice Elms for donating her piano and DCH for covering removal costs. It looks like the new piano will have a long life and be a genuine pleasure for Jessie to play and the residents to listen to.
There are bucket loads more stories just like this ~ so if you have a piano in good condition and would like it to have a longer life, please contact us here and we will do our best to find a new home for your instrument. Obviously . . . it helps if you don't live 103 floors up !
