British violinist Tasmin Little has this week announced the launch of a new charity initiative – whereby she will record personalised e-greetings for people to send to their loved ones.
Via her website, www.tasminlitte.org.uk, people will now be able to ask Tasmin to record a video message and play a short piece for someone special.
“It could be for someone who is in hospital, to wish them better or someone’s special birthday … or a ‘Thinking of You’ message …” Tasmin has said.
“I’m really aware that people are missing their loved ones during lockdown and that they are feeling distanced during important family times when they would normally be together, so I wanted to do something about it and also raise funds and awareness for a charity,” she has said.
Tasmin will produce around 7 greetings per week – with all proceeds going to the Help Musicians UK non for profit charity.
Each message will involve a £35 donation.
