Many thanks to Kathryn and Mandy for including Jemima’s Gift in the fundraising at this event. Hope you have a great fun evening!
Sera Sunny is the very deserving winner of the first of our competitions to win a place on a Give It Your Max tennis coaching course. You can read all about the competition and her fabulous entry here. We are thrilled to hear that the charity will be running two further competitions for children to win places on their summer courses, sponsored by Jemima’s Gift.
Sera looks very excited – we hope she loves her coaching as much as we love her beautiful name!
Jemima’s Gift is proud to be supporting Worton and Cheverell U10s football team on their exciting summer tour to Manchester. Team Badgers will be playing several fixtures and visiting some amazing football venues in the city. Our support means that the tour will be available to all members of the team, exactly as it should be – we hope you all have a great time and look forward to some great results!
We are very grateful to Christopher Morris for his extremely generous donation of a Kawai ES1 digital piano. Mr Morris, a very accomplished pianist and church organist, had no further use for the piano in his home and kindly thought of us. We are delighted to have given the piano to Lubna who continues to do really well in her piano lessons. We received a message from Lubna’s piano teacher saying “Lubna has got the keyboard – never seen her look so happy, she is thrilled!”
This is exactly what Chris was hoping would come out of his gift, so big smiles all round!
Melody Makers are the youngest choir in the Bath Abbey Music Society. They are made up of primary aged children from all walks of life, directed by Shean Bowers. This summer they are planning a tour to Liverpool and are busy raising funds to cover the costs.
Jemima’s Gift is very proud to be sponsoring their fundraising concert in Bath Abbey so that all the costs of putting on the event are covered, leaving all donations available to contribute to the costs of the tour. We think it is great that talented children are able to participate in such an exciting venture and we are very much looking forward to joining them on Wednesday for what promises to be a lovely evening.
Daniel Smith, a music teacher working with primary school children in Wiltshire, has been running a scheme to teach violin to whole classes of children, thereby making instrumental lessons accessible to many children who wouldn’t be able to have them individually. Now he has seven children ready to start preparing for their Grade One exam and has approached us for help. We will be providing music and exam fees to support this valuable initiative.
Everyone at Jemima’s Gift wishes Daniel and his pupils every success, we can’t wait to hear the results!
