Statements of support

It was you (Sheffield Cathedral) and your cathedral Sing! Programme that resulted in 3 kids from very diverse backgrounds, from a Burngreave school, successfully auditioning for National Youth Choir of GB. The barriers for them weren’t access to community singing programmes - you’d successfully achieved that - it was financial travel/chaperone support to get further, eg to rehearsals and the Royal Albert Hall. One was deported, along with her family back to Syria before she had chance to go, the other two successfully attended with help of Church Burgess funding.
