Didcot charity choir Soundabout, has become one of the first charities in the country to benefit from a £500 Tesco grant.

Tesco plans to provide nationwide support for local groups, including £25m in food donations and to support as many groups as possible with grants of £500.

Soundabout works to empower people with severe learning difficulties through music.

The new grant has helped the inclusive choir put extra funding towards purchasing microphones, cameras and technical equipment. This means they can host their community music sessions online, ensuring those with learning difficulties can still access all important multi-sensory activities.
