11 year old Sophie from Brighton loves drums and music. We awarded Sophie the money to pay for her music lessons.

Updates from Sophie R


When I found out that I could have my piano and drum lessons I was extremely happy! And it was all thanks to the Starr Trust. Now that I can have these lessons I’m absolutely thrilled because ever since I was little, music has been my whole world! I would never stop singing and would constantly make up tunes on my little xylophone. When I got my keyboard it was impossible for me to stop playing and it’s the same now that I have also started learning the drums. The Starr Trust has given me a big opportunity which I otherwise would never have.

Sophie's mum:

We both very delighted and thankful for your award for piano and drums tuition, which I would not be otherwise able to afford to pay.

A huge thank you to Rochelle and Accordance VAT for the latest Champion’s Chat. Rochelle, who is Facilities Manager at the company along with her colleagues Louise and Anita, gave invaluable advice to Champions Jay, Sophie and Amira on how to write a CV – and how to get it noticed when they apply for jobs. They were given tips on job boards, what to include in a CV, and what puts employers off. The Champions were treated to a tour of Accordance VAT’s fabulous Brighton offices, and went home with an advice pack, which will be of great practical use when they start to apply for work. We are excited to look at other subjects that Accordance will present on for future Champions’ Chats. Watch this space! Thank you Rochelle, Louise and Anita.
