The Discworld Convention is a not-for-profit event and is proud to support two charities at each convention.
Music Therapy Works
Music Therapy Works uses music to provide therapy to people with a wide range of issues. Music can be used to form bonds and interact with non-verbal communicators.
They provide music therapy to infants, children and adults with learning disabilities, special needs, autism, challenging behaviour and communication disorders.
The Orangutan Foundation
The Orangutan Foundation's mission is the protection and conservation of the orangutan and of the orangutan's habitat, the tropical forests of Borneo and Sumatra.
The charities we supported in 2014 were: the Orangutan Foundation (as is traditional), and Springboard for Children - a children's literacy charity. The donations by our members to the traditional charity auction meant we were able to support each charity with £6,250.
