This Saturday (30th March) she will be singing as part of Lichfield Gospel Choir in a special fundraising concert she has organised at Wade Street Church in Lichfield.

She will follow this on 28th April by taking part in the London Marathon.

The funds raised by both events will go towards Refuge, a charity which gives support for women and children who are victims of domestic violence and abuse.
