“Having seen at first hand the results of Nathan Timothy's work with primary school children, I had no hesitation in agreeing to be the patron of the Songwriting Charity.
“Nathan has an extraordinary ability to motivate children by breathing life into their musical creativity and encouraging them to believe in themselves. Over three thousand children have received this gift already in this first year and I am proud to be associated with this achievement.”
