Donations and Charity

Here at the Alresford Ukulele Jam, we are all about helping our local community in whatever way we can.  It was decided early on that we would raise money for our local community and the charities closest to our hearts.

As members of the Jam, we all do this for fun, and for free.  No one gets paid and anything we earn from gigs goes to supporting our bands basic needs (our sound kit), local community projects and charitable fundraising efforts.

Take a look at the donations we have been able to make.  And remember, if you are thinking of booking us – your money will be going to a good cause.
