British PRO PRS for Music has raised more than £2.1m ($2.6m) to help its members severely financially impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile, sister org PPL is bringing forward its June distribution to April, pledging an advance payment to members of £23.9m ($29.7m).

Since its launch in March, the PRS Emergency Relief Fund has helped more than 3,000 songwriters and composers, with more than £1.2m ($1.5m) being paid out so far.

“We have seen first-hand the difference the PRS Emergency Relief Fund has made and I would like to sincerely thank everyone who has donated so far,” PRS for Music CEO Andrea C. Martin.

PPL, the U.K.’s music licensing company for performers and recording rights-holders, will make its advance payment of £23.9m to more than 15,000 performers and rights holders at the end of April.

PPL Chief Executive Officer Peter Leathem thanked "PPL’s staff for their tireless efforts in making this payment happen.”
