Young musician Hambel Goodchild, from Seaford, is raising funds to take part in a project which will run workshops for underprivileged children abroad who want to learn to play an instrument.

The Rotary Club of Seaford were treated to a lunch accompanied by Hambel playing the flute.

She then told the club about her selection to take part in the Commonwealth Resounds Project.

The project will see a team of young musicians from the UK visit Malta in November to run the workshops. They will also perform to the children and let them experiment with their instruments before teaching them the basics of music.

A spokesman for The Rotary Club of Seaford said it has agreed to help her to put on a concert in the summer to raise funds for her to take part in the project.

Club president Ray Hazan said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to support Hambel in this way, and we wish her every success for the future. Hambel was the winner of the Seaford Rotary Young Musician of the Year competition in 2013, and she now attends the Purcell School of Music. She is a very accomplished flautist and pianist and she is very proud to have been selected for the Commonwealth Resounds project.”
