Swan Samba’s Mental Health Fundraiser: ‘D4WMHD’

10 October 2023 @ 18:00 - 20:30

We are proud to announce our specifically composed song to raise awareness and support of mental health and World Mental Health Day.
D4WMHD (‘Drum for World Mental Health Day’) is a fundraiser headed by Swan Samba, with lots of exciting things being planned and launched on the special day, Tuesday 10th October.
Swan Samba has become a powerful means in which to support wellbeing, whether it’s drumming in the band itself, workshops in schools and the community, online collab projects with other drummers and teachers across the globe, or watching / taking part in public performances. For 2023, we are linking up with Solent Mind to launch a 3 part fundraiser and to help raise awareness and support of mental health, a cause that is close to our hearts in RPA.
On Tues 10th Oct, we are:
1. Launching fundraisers in our local area with Solent Mind. But other bands and organisations who have expressed an interest to get involved will also be launching their own in-person fundraisers alongside us and in their own neighbourhood. We are also hoping that bands who are involved will also perform their own rendition of this song on Tuesday 10th October and beyond…
2. Releasing this song and an accompanying music video put together by our lovely Swan Samba media team. Swan Samba – and the other bands and teachers involved – will be submitting videos of them playing parts of the song (or similar!). This will then be unveiled on World Mental Health Day, helping bring our online community together and shining a spotlight on the importance of supporting one another’s mental health and qualified organisations out there to help those in need.
3. Solent Mind are going to share a set of accessible resources with their contacts and the wider community to help individuals get involved at home! We’re really, really excited about this bit!
