As some of you may know, my wonderful grandmother Enid passed away this Christmas. My grandmother was the best person in the whole world – and she is almost entirely responsible for all my singing today!
In her memory, I am creating a trust called Enid’s Star Fund. It’s all very early days, but essentially this will be a scholarship fund for musical young children, providing them with a means to receive music and singing tuition.
This can’t be a registered charity at the moment, as, according to the Charities Commission, a registered charity requires an minimum income of £5000 annually. However, I do like to dream big – and I hope this might be a possibility, one day!
I am currently creating a website for the Fund, which will be released over the next few weeks; there you’ll be able to keep up-to-date with my fundraising activities, a page for donations, plans to raise awareness – and how the money will be used.
If this is something that appeals to you, please do donate!
