We are holding a celebratory concert on Saturday June 1st at 7.30 pm at St Michael’s Church Blewbury. The aim of the concert is to celebrate the work of the Trust, celebrate the achievements of the beneficiaries and further promote the work of the Trust and we are inviting beneficiaries, sponsors and supporters to help with celebrations. Several beneficiaries are appearing in the Concert, starring Simeon Lord – Jazz Saxophonist and featuring Angels Performing Arts, Megan Hughes – Singer, Blewbury Brass Band and more. Tickets are £15 and include a complimentary glass of wine or soft drink. Box Office is open from Friday April 19th. Please visit www.thetonyloytrust.org for further information and to buy tickets.

The object of The Tony Loy Trust is to support children and young people from Blewbury and the surrounding area in sports and the arts. We have provided £57,000 in 112 grants to individuals, organisations and projects. 44% of these have been in the arts: we have purchased keyboards, cornets and stage lighting in local schools; helped young companies stage productions at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival; sponsored people on music and drama courses; and helped a performing arts group send children to international festivals. 56% of our grants have been in sports: to elite sportspeople in athletics, triathlon and motorsport; to a girls’ football and boys’ rugby club; and to an all-weather goal area at a local recreation area and play equipment in a pre-school. Overall, our support has improved facilities, provided opportunities, strengthened communities and developed skills and confidence.
