The BRIT Trust announced as Official Charity Partner to the Music Week Awards 2021
The BRIT Trust – the charity of the UK recorded music industry – was delighted last night to have been named the Official Charity Partner to the Music Week Awards 2021, which took place at Battersea Evolution, London.
Accepting the honour in front of 1,300-plus diverse audience of largely young music industry executives, BRIT School Principal Stuart Dowden was joined on stage by BRIT School alumnus and now BBC Radio 1Xtra presenter Ace and by Nordoff Robbins CEO Sandra Schembri. All three leading figures spoke powerfully and with passion thanking The BRIT Trust for its support and underlining just how vital Trust funding is to their work and how important it was in helping them to continue operating through lockdown. The key theme running through all their comments was that The BRIT Trust is THE charity of the music industry, belonging to everyone present in the room on the night.
Tony Wadsworth CBE, BRIT Trust Chair, said:
"We’re thrilled that the vital work of The BRIT Trust over three decades has been recognised by the Music Week Awards 2021. One of my key missions as Chair is to ensure that many more people are made aware of The Trust and what it does to improve lives through the power of music, not least the next generation of leaders coming through the music industry, and on behalf of the Trustees I would like to thank Music Week for this honour and the platform it provides.”
