CASH from the Co-op is helping to get a young musician project in Sherborne to hit the right note.

Mandy Fordham, manager of the Co-operative food store in Westbridge Park, Sherborne, presented a cheque for £2,000 to Sherborne Douzelage.

The cheque, a contribution from the Co-operative Community Fund, was presented to Douzelage chairman Clifton Jelbert and treasurer Jane Smith.

Sherborne Douzelage - a European town-twinning organisation - is running the project jointly with Sherborne School and the Gryphon School in Sherborne.

Mr Jelbert said: “Sherborne Douzelage wishes to thank the Co-operative for their generosity in supporting the Sherborne Young Musician Project.

“This will help enable young musicians to take part in a competition on 14th and 15th March and then for the best ten of them to go on to take part in an International Festival in Sherborne in July with fellow teenage musicians from across Europe.”

The deadline for entries has been extended to 14th February and more information including entry forms can be found on the www.sherbornemusic.org website.

Mr Jelbert said: “Sherborne Douzelage would like to thank all local organisations and companies for their support towards the success of this project, which will bring opportunities and development to our young musicians.”
