Jessie’s Fund is a small charity which provides music therapy and musical instruments for children who are terminally ill or severely disabled. Jessie was a musical girl who sadly died from a brain tumour at the age of nine. Her family and friends had been raising money to send her to the United States for treatment and Jessie called this pot ‘Jessie’s Fund’ but Jessie was unable to make use of the fund. Jessie spent a lot of time in a children’s hospice which had no music therapy which is why Jessie’s parents decided to use the money that they had raised to bring music to other children with life-limiting illnesses. This is still a family-run charity and the music that they provide has genuine impact on children’s well-being.
