“I hope the NSPCC can help children in need everywhere to find their own voices and find happiness…” – Angus Benton
January 2017. Angus Benton & Peter Wanless
BBC’s Young Chorister of the Year 2015 Angus Benton:
“I’ve been so lucky to find my voice through singing. I also have family and friends who care about me, listen to me and help me. But I know that for too many children, Childline is the only place they can turn to.
With money raised from these concerts and this recording, I hope the NSPCC can help children in need everywhere to find their own voices and find happiness.”
NSPCC Chief Executive Peter Wanless:
“Angus’ support will help us to protect even more children from abuse and neglect. I am delighted that hear Angus has chosen to donate part of his album proceeds to help children who are supported by the NSPCC—a remarkable act of selflessness. On behalf of everyone at the NSPCC and the children whose lives he will help, I thank him wholeheartedly.”
Managing Director Adrian Green:
Convivium Records work with many young artists and were delighted by Angus Benton’s proposal to use his solo recording to help children in need. We have committed to giving 10% of proceeds from CD sales of Angus Benton’s album to the NSPCC over the first year of sales with a minimum commited donation of £250 to assist with its valuable work.
