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.
