The GLA Culture team is currently in discussion with a wide range of music organisations and music education providers regarding the distribution plan for the pledged instruments. This plan will be announced at the Music Education Summit in the New Year. The GLA has not provided direct financial support to run this scheme. Time Out are managing the online database of pledges. Currently, there are no costs associated with this project.
