Teenage singer raises £16,000 for injured soldiers’ charity.
TEENAGE singer Tamsin Ball has been hitting the right notes for injured heroes.
Tamsin, 19, from Northam, gave up her job as a hairdresser to sing professionally and use her voice to raise funds for the charity Help for Heroes.
In six months, together with helpers, she has raised £16,000 during performances in towns and city centres all over the South West.
Venues have included shopping malls, holiday parks, hotels, pubs, clubs and even London West End theatres.
She said: “This has been a wonderful experience – from busking in the rain to performing on stage at a West End theatre.
“I have met some wonderful generous people from all walks of life who have put their hands in their pockets in support of our wounded service personnel.
“I look forward to doing it all over again this summer.”
In recognition of her achievement, Tamsin, who hopes to record a new album in March, has been presented with a special certificate from Help for Heroes.
