We are delighted to announce that Music Generation Cork City are one of the successful grant applicants from the inaugural RTÉ Toy Show Appeal. The generosity of the Late Late Toy Show audience surpassed all expectations, and it is incredible to think that over 630,000 children and family members across the island of Ireland, will benefit in so many ways.
The Community Foundation for Ireland, who reviewed and assessed all the grant applications, said that the standard of applications was incredibly high. We are overjoyed that our programme here in Cork has been chosen and we look forward to directing these funds into much needed performance music avenues, which we are very eager to expand into.
We are reliably told that the RTÉ Toy Show Appeal will be back this year, and it is hoped that over the years to come, it will help many more children in lots of different ways.
Our very own Mc Tiny and Garry McCarthy (GMC Beats) were chatting on the Ryan Tubridy show as this amazing news was announced – their enthusiasm and passion for their craft reflects so much of what goes on around the city on our programmes!
