Lauretta, 97, Singer and pianist

"Help Musicians UK has helped me financially with my piano tuning, domestic help and friendly visits, never forgetting my birthday or Christmas, little kindnesses that make such a difference to my well being."

Singer and pianist Lauretta first started performing in 1929, and still continues today when she can.  She has had a long and varied career, and we first got to know her when health issues made it difficult for her to sing.   We understand how hard it is to save for retirement during a freelance music career, and we also understand how important music is, which is why as well as helping Lauretta with living costs, we make sure that her piano is tuned regularly.
