Youngsters to perform on fundraising music night

A CONCERT in aid of those suffering from mental illness will take place on Saturday, 14th October.

Among the performers were young musicians from Aylesford School, Stratford Girls’ Grammar, and Stratford Rock School, with all proceeds from the event at Warwick Hall going to the national charity Young Minds and two local charities, Lifespace Trust and SOS: Silence of Suicide.

Organiser, Sue Roberts, has a personal experience, after helping her 17-year-old daughter with mental illness and supporting a few girls when teaching music at a school. She says:

“Music is a great leveller and is also good therapy for those recovering from mental illness, hence my decision to have a concert solely performed by young local people.”

Among the attendees at Young Minds Matter were MPs Matt Western and Nadhim Zahawi, SOS founder and high-profile barrister Michael Mansfield, and the Mayor of Warwick, Cllr Stephen Cross, while businessman Sir Peter Rigby also supported the night.

Tickets are £45 for the Champayne reception, dinner and concert, starting at 6.30pm, or £25 for the Champagne reception and concert, starting at 8pm.
