ALL proceeds raised on the evening in aid of Sophie’s Silver Lining Fund a charity that helps struggling Actors, Actresses and Musicians complete their performing arts training see www.sslf.org.uk.
Sophie Large was tragically killed in a car accident in February 1998, aged nineteen. Her parents, Cherry and Stephen Large, set up a Memorial Fund, to be known as SOPHIE’S SILVER LINING FUND, to help needy young artists with the considerable expenses of their training in acting or singing. The inspiration for the Fund comes from Sophie’s own words in a Haiku.
Thanks to the energy, commitment and talent of Cherry and Stephen, and the generosity of their supporters, the charity has raised tens of thousands of pounds and has assisted a large number of students. You can learn about some of the ways in which this money has been raised, and who has benefited from it, by exploring the website. The success of the Fund has also helped Cherry and Stephen come to terms with their loss. In 2007, they stood down as Trustees to pursue other interests: Stephen climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for charity while Cherry supervised the superb conversion of a barn on their property into a private arts venue known as Sophie’s Barn.
The charity continues to be run by a group of Trustees – Jane Maudsley was funded by SSLF whilst studying towards her Masters at the RSAMD and is now a
Trustee of the charity.The Patron is Dame Judi Dench.
Look forward to hearing from you.
*Only Little Voices Tutors’ and Pupils’ Families/Friends are able to purchase tickets for this event. If booking a table all money must be paid for the full table for it to be allocated.
