Supporting Local Charities
The Flute Group collects for a local charity each year. Here you can find something about the charities we have supported.
2019 - Olivia Inspires
Olivia Inspires was set up this year by the parents of Olivia Burt to allow the spirit of their daughter to live on after her tragic death in 2018.
The aim of the charity is to help young people aged 11-28 in the New Forest area to develop their potential in the arts, sports and sciences.

In addition to our yearly charity concert, we were very fortunate to be invited to play at two extra events, St Mary's Social Group at Everton and The Lymington Voluntarty Care Group Drivers, which took place at Southlawns Hotel. Both events generously supported our charity and altogether we managed to raise a total of £500.
Paula and Nigel Burt paid us a visit at our rehearsal on Thursday 16th January. It was a lovely moment to be able to hand over the cheque for the money raised.
