Stamford School pupil James Ellis, a teenager from the Bythams, is demonstrating his extraordinary enterprise and promotional skill by organising Musicality, a major concert at Peterborough Arena on Friday 4th November in support of four very deserving charities.
James’s action was prompted by a shocking incident on a school rugby tour last year when his friend George Robinson was seriously injured, severely damaging his spinal cord. In James’s own words:
”Last summer, when on Rugby tour to South Africa, an accident happened. On one sunny afternoon, many lives can be turned upside down simply by one incident. This made me realise just how precious every life really is and how quickly things can change.
With this, I grew the passion to make change for those unfortunate people that we see every day. Not only to financially support the charities, but to show them that in modern society, they have the support of thousands of people.
The 4 causes that we have chosen to benefit from this concert are simply incredible. Between them they have supported and inspired hundreds of individuals and their families. I first gained exposure to them when I was at primary school and have a connection to each one; having seen first-hand how public support can change peoples’ lives. I wanted to create this event at Peterborough Arena.
I had a dream and this dream is coming true. To bring to you a concert, as a show of reward, for all the hard work that has been given by these charities over the years.
100% of all proceeds will be split between the beneficiaries with no profit taken by our organisation. Let’s bring thousands of people together at 1 place and at 1 time, to show our support. You will not forget this night, I promise.
Let’s pull together. Let’s change lives.”
Bythams Music wish James every success and urge everyone to spread the word and support him.
