Laura Scott: Tutor at Reeltime Music

REELTIME Music is a charity based in Newarthill, Motherwell, which helps young people from disadvantaged backgrounds learn new skills in music and the media.

Reeltime began in 1997, and provides workshops for many different groups within the local community and beyond. Although based in the local community centre which hosts their recording studio, they also travel further afield, providing opportunities for young people who may not otherwise receive them.

Laura Scott, who works at Reeltime, spoke about how she got involved with the charity, and the impact it has on young people.

Reeltime Music, in partnership with North Lanarkshire Council 16+ Bellshill Learning Hub, have made a community music video to raise money and awareness for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK.

The music video features a cover of the hit Monkees song ‘I’m a Believer’ and has participants from various community groups and schools.

The young people are hoping to raise at least £200 and make the video go viral on social networking sites and YouTube by getting more than a million views. The group just launched their video today, and you can watch it right here:

All money raised from the project will go to Make-A-Wish Foundation UK.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK is a charity which grants magical wishes to children and young people aged 3-17 fighting life-threatening conditions.
