Abi’s Pianothon

On 1st September, CEO Abi played the piano for 12 hours to raise money for our Make Music 2 Make Music campaign. Based at the flagship Yamaha store in London for the day, Abi was joined by friends of MF who all came along to add their support as she raised over £2000. A big thank you to everyone who donated. Click to find out more.
