A very big thanks for all your help and support in making the harpathon such a success. Early estimates suggest that we have raised in excess of £2000.00 for Cancer Research.

Thank you for all your hard work at Cancer Research UK’s very first Christmas Carol Concert held on Monday 12th December at St John’s Church in Cardiff… The evening was a great success and got everyone into the festive mood whilst raising money for Cancer Research UK to continue their lifesaving work.

Charity Work

For many years, Amanda worked with Yehudi Menuhin’s charity Live Music Now! -a  charity which helps young people at the start of their careers to go out into the community and perform for those who are unable to get to a concert hall. The charity also gives the opportunity of performing in concert halls across Britain.

Amanda continues to work as a jazz harpist, extensively for “Lost Chord” a similar charity based in Yorkshire. Lost Chord, founded by Helena Muller, takes music to elderly homes and hospitals, concentrating specifically on those with severe dementia.

Amanda has always supported Cancer Charities. In 2008, she put down the harp and picked up her running shoes, taking part in the Cardiff Half Marathon in order to raise funds for the lung cancer unit of a local hospital. The hospital had cared for a pupil’s mother who had  tragically passed away.

Over the years, she has performed for many concerts and fundraisers; most recently in St Mary’s Church, Whitchurch, Cardiff to raise money for Velindre Hospital.

Other charities have included The Meningitis Trust and NSPCC.
