U.K. record labels have pledged a further £270k for the artist and live music communities as they continue to fight the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. The contribution joins previously raised funds of £1.25m.

Co-ordinated by record label trade association BPI, this second round of funding will go to a range of causes that will help sustain artists and musicians, artist managers and grassroots music venues that are most in need.

Musicians charity Help Musicians, music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins and the Music Venue Trust will receive close to £60k each. Mental well-being and addictions charity Music Support will receive nearly £30k to help fund its NHS-approved well-being app Thrive.

The monies are drawn from funds previously provided by major record labels Sony Music Entertainment U.K., Universal Music U.K., and Warner Music U.K., and independents Cherry Red and Demon Music Group, as well as The BRIT Awards, Amazon Music and PPL. They have since been added to with a significant contribution from YouTube Music.
