Yamaha Music and Guitar Guitar donate guitars to British Army Recovery Centre
The companies have joined forces to deliver a range of Yamaha Pacifica electrics as well as practice amps to the centre - which assists wounded, injured, and sick soldiers in their recovery – for use in the centre's workshops and music tuition.
Through a series of tailor made programmes, the brand new centre aims to expose the soldiers to the thrills of learning a musical instrument, as well as rebuilding their confidence in the process, explains Fraser Dowling, second in command at the centre:
"We are extremely grateful to Yamaha and Guitar Guitar for this kind donation, welfare is an extremely important part of each soldier's recovery."
The initial guitar sessions have been a massive hit amongst the soldiers and the centre is planning a series of back-to-back tuition programmes to help meet the high demand.
