Awards for Young Musicians

Giving talent a chance

AYM Champions

A cause worth championing

AYM Champions are those generous people who give regularly from £5 per month to our charity. The monthly amount you choose to give is completely up to you. Every donation goes towards helping young musicians develop their talent and overcome the financial and  social barriers they face. Donate today and help to Give talent a chance


And now, through our Presto! campaign, your donation will be doubled for one year if you sign up to be an AYM Champion.  Garfield Weston Foundation will match monthly donations established between March 2019 and March 2020 for a period of 12 months, up to a total value of £20,000.
