The Helen Foundation Trustees aim to meet personally each young person requesting a bursary as part of the application process. Following the decision of Trustees to award a bursary to one young person, THF received this reply:
“It was lovely to meet you both. I would just like to say a big thank you for my bursary, and I will make sure you have spent it well on me. I have just completed my exam on Sunday and it went really well and I will keep you up to date with my progress.”
Another bursary holder, is singer/song-writer Alice Jemima. Her mother Jo recently wrote to THF to say:
“Off to London this week with Alice – she is playing a gig organised by Rob da Bank in a chapel in Soho… and then an interview at Maida Vale to go with her radio session…It’s all go these days! Thank you so much for the grant towards Alice’s microphones, she uses them both every single day, and her recordings are now sounding so much better.”
Well done Alice!
