A music charity in London has launched a city-wide instrument recycling campaign, called Lost and Sound.

London Music Masters (LMM), which provides music education to children in inner-city primary schools, is calling for supporters to donate any disused violins, cellos, trumpets, flutes and clarinets.

The instruments will be loaned to children aged five to nine in LMM's Bridge Project at three primary schools in Lambeth and Westminster. Surplus instruments will be offered to local music services, hubs and other music charities.

LMM hopes the Lost and Sound initiative will enable it to save money on instrument purchase and hire, and focus its resources on teaching.
