Over the next few months, I'm going to play piano in care homes and other places around London to raise money for building a school in The Gambia. The idea is, if I'm going to be sponsored for something, I might as well entertain people along the way - especially those who may not have much opportunity to go out to concerts or the theatre.
We're already fixing a date for my first carehome gig, and I'm currently putting together a repertoire of classical, jazz and blues to provide short concerts in the community between September and Christmas.
Why? Well, next February I'm going with a group from First Crystal Palace Scouts to help build an extra classroom for a Gambian school. It's an exciting trip and I'm very lucky to have this opportunity.
My parents are covering the costs of my flight and accommodation, so every penny that I raise through playing the piano will be going towards the charity behind all this - Wonder Years Centre of Excellence.
Please give what you can. Thank you! I appreciate it.
