A trainee music therapist has organised a fund raiser with a difference.
On Friday and Saturday Martha Thompson and other musicians will perform at two Concerts for Rwanda at a friend’s home in Fulwood.
She has organised the events, which are described as “an enchanting evening of alternating classical music and courses of a meal” in a bid to raise funding to finance a placement in Rwanda later this year.
The flautist, (pictured), whose family home is in Grimsargh, has been working as a community musician in Birmingham. trained at the Birmingham Conservatoire and is part way through a music therapy masters degree at the University of the West of England.
In Rwanda she will be working with international organisation Musicians without Borders and organisation We-Act and needs to raise around £5,000 to fund the trip. Tickets, with a suggested donation of £20 can be obtained by calling 07858 911563 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
