Our good friends and supporters, Marshall UK, have generously donated 5 Natal Arcadia drum kits to the Joe Strummer Foundation. These kits have only ever been used for photoshoots and they're all in mint condition.
Two of the kits (pictured below) have just been shipped off to WAYout Arts (Freetown, Sierra Leone), with one more being shipped to Eggtooth Project (East Sussex, UK) and another soon to go to Open Access Sessions (Hastings & Bexhill, East Sussex, UK). The last kit is yet to be passed on, we'll announce here as soon as we have an update.
All these projects we admire very much and support any way we can. They do some incredible work with music and performing arts for young adults and we're certain these drum kits are on their way to good homes.
A very special shout out to Natal Arcadia Drums and Marshall Amps UK for supporting our work and allowing us, in turn, to provide much needed support to impactful projects around the world that create empowerment through music.

The Joe Strummer Foundation
The Eggtooth Project was founded in April 2012 by Sally Greig and Laura Clarke. The aim was to create complementary educational programs to tackle significant underachievement in able students, who are in receipt of free school meals. All Eggtooth programs are underpinned by a robust therapeutic approach, combined with creative activities to ensure students are supported whilst being challenged.
