Children in Need: Singing with Sunbeams

The founder of the Sunbeams Music Trust, Annie Mawson, describes the work she does as 'reaching the unreachables'. Each week across Cumbria, dozens of children with varying levels of disability attend the trust's music therapy sessions with their parents.

To keep going, the charity relies on money from the BBC's annual Children in Need appeal.

With BBC Radio 4's Today programme selling special edition radios to mark the show's return to Broadcasting House in central London - reporter Tom Feilden went to a singing session at Kendal in the Lake District, to see how the cash is spent, and meet the youngsters and parents who benefit.
