The Mayor’s charity update

The Mayor of Camden, Councillor Jenny Headlam-Wells, has so far raised more than £47,000 for her Mayoral charity for 2018 to 2019.

Camden Music Trust supports the Camden Music Service to provide free tuition and musical instrument loans to children who might not otherwise be able to afford to develop their musical talent.

Mayor of Camden, Councillor Jenny Headlam-Wells, said: “I want to help Camden Music Trust continue to ensure that music making is not an elitist pursuit, but something all our children and young people can enjoy.

“As the charity says, ‘music inspires, excites, uplifts and connects. It builds confidence and self-esteem, supports academic achievement, fosters discipline and patience, and promotes creativity'.”
