Pass It On Week runs from 10th-18th March and this year’s theme is musical instruments. LEAP will be collecting old instruments and related equipment (eg music stands, microphones, guitar pedals, sheet music, tuition books), to be reused by others.
Items (including damaged instruments) can be dropped off at :
LEAP offices (Lochwinnoch or Bridge of Weir)
St Vincent’s Hospice Shops
RAMH Re-use Superstore, Johnstone
Bridge of Weir Primary School
Houston Primary School
Howwood Primary School
Kilbarchan Community Nursery
Kilbarchan Primary School
Lochwinnoch Primary School
St Fillan's Primary School
The instruments will be re-used by the drop off organisation (used for music tuition in schools, or sold on for fundraising in charity shops), or passed to local music groups (eg bagpipes (including parts), chanters and drumsticks can be rehomed with Kilbarchan Pipe Band) with any excess or damaged instruments being passed on to Music Broth, a new charity in Glasgow, to be refurbished and added to their Musical Instrument Library.
Many people are put off learning a musical instrument due to the expense and re-use makes it more accessible, affordable… and more environmentally friendly!
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Renfrewshire Pass It On Week - Instrument Amnesty are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
