THE PURE IMAGINATION TRUST
The Pure Imagination Trust has been set up by a group of trustees who share a passion for live music and entertainment and the impact that it can have on health and wellbeing. We will directly support those receiving care in hospitals and hospices across the North West and we will ensure that our charitable activities offer well needed respite during difficult times.
This group of professionals are dedicated to raising money to supply entertainment to settings that support people of all ages receiving care. We will deliver a bespoke service that is tailored to the needs of patients within each setting.
Fundraising takes many forms and our trustees welcome the support of anyone who shares our passion. The Pure Imagination trust will provide everything from music therapy to live ensembles for patients and relatives.
When words fail, music speaks.
