We are delighted to announce that the Childhood Christmas Give 2017 raised a phenomenal £18,899 towards the LYC subsidy fund.  For a week in Autumn 2017, The Big Give offered the opportunity for all donations to LYC to be doubled, thanks to the generosity of match funders The Childhood Trust and Andy Roberts. All money raised will support LYC subsidies and bursaries, ensuring that no young person should face financial barriers to receiving high calibre musical training. Thank you to all those who helped make this possible; we are continuously grateful for your support.
