Laura, Supporting young talent

Laura met a young person through her lodger. As she came to know them, she realised he was a very passionate self taught musician. One day he was playing on her piano when it came to light that he didn’t actually have a keyboard.  To practice, the young man either had to stay late at school or borrow a friend’s keyboard. Laura’s group, wanting to encourage a young person to pursue their passions, gifted him with £120 towards a keyboard. A few weeks later, Laura invited him to a small neighbourhood meetup where he was pleased to come along and play for them, including some songs that he’d written himself!
