In 2013 the first bursary fundraiser was birthed in the shape of a CD.
The vision to manifest a collection of songs was held by Liz Terry over several years and birthed through a precious collaboration with Maya Waldman, Sam Elvyhart, Eleanor Brown and Karen Coren with encouraging support from the WIP community, especially Lizzie Rothschild who had the idea that this would be a great way to begin our fundraising.
With only two rehearsal sessions and a weekend performing live in the studio our wonderful CD was born, with a chorus of women formed specially to sing on four of the tracks.
The WIP choir were:
Angela Triggs, Geri May, Lucinda Pitman, Lisa Williams, Debbie Collins, Fen Bagias, Aurore Teuira, Paula Alter, Tina Lynch, Pat Johnson, Rosalind Turner, Jane Mounty, Siobhan Wooster, Lizzie Rothschild, Cathy Jefferson, Sarka Kubschova & Roxy Grimshaw.
All time and energy given was volunteered, and all proceeds from the album go directly to the bursary fund. You can download your copy on this site or order a CD by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
