Your support will enable us to continue to provide our songwriting service free of charge to people facing end of life and bereavement. Be part of something special. If you are able to help in any way we’d love to hear from you:

I remember meeting people for the first time, talking about what music they like, their nerves about writing a song. I remember their faces when they first see and hear the song taking shape and realising they can do this. I remember recording sessions in hospice chapels and people’s excitement at putting studio headphones on for the first time. I remember the excitement of hearing how loved ones reacted to the song. The memories are powerful and often choke me up a bit but they are always full of smiles and laughs too” 

– Ben Buddy Slack (Founder and Creative Director)

“Just wanted to thank you for being around at Marie Curie hospice, my son passed away on 22 March what was going on in his head is unimaginable. I know he enjoyed writing that song which must have provided some relief for him a break from the discomfort and stress perhaps. So a sincere thank you from myself and his family I hope you can keep up this good work”

“This has been one of the best memories I can recall in a long while. I will treasure this great gift always.”
