A Classical Concert in Aid of Ski 2 Freedom Foundation, London, 1st October 2015

Ski 2 Freedom was founded in 2007 by Catherine Cosby, mother to Max and Archie (c), inspired by her eldest daughter Alexandra, who is severely disabled with Rett Syndrome. The Foundation is delighted to announce its first ever concert, to be held at St Gabriel’s Church, Pimlico SW1V 2AD at 19:30 on Thursday 1st October. Tickets at £25 each will include a wine and Alpine food reception following the three performances from Alicia Lowes, Julia Doyle and Sandra Gayner, who will be singing a variation of classical-crossover and soprano renditions.

Any support is thoroughly appreciated and proceeds will be exclusively allocated to:

  • The ‘Ski 2 Freedom Information Resource’, which ensures that our beneficiaries achieve barrier-free access to the mountains using this global and comprehensive guide and tailor made advice service to support their specific needs and requirements.
  • The Tobell Winter Sports Programme, which was established with a legacy to ensure young people have access to winter sports and mountain activities in order to develop their potential. One such programme was held in Wengen, Switzerland, this year and saw two remarkable young people learn to snowboard: John McDermott was born with no limbs (Amelia Condition) and Ellie Challis had both feet and hands amputated because of Meningitis.   For over 150 years the Alps and Mountains have been well-known for their therapeutic qualities. We are striving to bring this reality closer and are breaking down barriers to enable everyone to benefit on an equal basis and at all levels in mountain activities, both in the winter and in the summer.
