With a Little Help From our friends

'With a Little Help From my Friends' - we had over 100 ukulele players get involved from all over the world to raise money for Help Musicians and NHS Charities Together. A percentage also went to donate a set of ukuleles to the music therapy department at The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability, in Putney, South West London.
