Supporting Reading Mencap

Are You Listening? are proud that Reading Mencap has been our official charity partner since the first AYL music festival in 2013. In that time, we have raised over £34,000 for this vital local charity. Thank you from AYL, Reading Mencap and everyone that supports us for all your help. Let’s make this year even better!

“We love what Reading Mencap does and stands for. Music knows no prejudice, no barriers and brings everyone together, whatever their background. And Reading Mencap does the same – ensuring we are all, irrespective of any learning disability, able to live full and active lives in our community. It deserves all our support. Please give whatever you can.” (Shane Daunt and Dave Maul, AYL Festival organisers)
