THAT unwanted set of timpani at the bottom of your Christmas stocking might have several takers. But if the season of good will is still in operation then consider this: the Chance for Children Trust, which provides resources for abused and disturbed children and young people, needs instruments. The charity supports non-verbal work that gets through to the emotionally damaged, and music is prominent. It particularly wants keyboards and percussion, but it won't turn down offers of hard cash or sponsored fund-raising. Contact it at Freepost (SE6892), London, SE25 4BR.
