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.

“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.
