The Percy Bilton Charity have supported us to buy excellent Microphones and a Keyboard to finish our Recording studio. We are really grateful for this grant and already our young musicians are enjoying the equipment and the studio is in full and good use. It has added to the vitality and raised the bar line of the academy already.
Percy Bilton was an entrepreneur who in the 1920s and 1930s built up a group of successful property companies which in the 1970s was listed on the London Stock Exchange. The Charity makes distributions primarily in areas relating to older people, the disabled and children and young people who are socially or educationally disadvantaged or underprivileged.
