Here at The Grand Old Uke of York we love it when we get to combine our passion for playing with giving a little back to charities who work so hard supporting those needing that bit extra.
Normally that involves us playing at a charity gig, busking in the rain or donating ticket profits from concerts. We feel privileged to be able to do this as a group but have been looking for a way to get other musicians involved for a while now...
AND then we spotted this!!
