Jessie suffers from hearing loss and, after a hard time at her previous school, was flourishing at the smaller drama school K-Bis. Jessie is a talented and dedicated performer, however meeting the cost of the drama school fees was proving a challenge for her mother.

We awarded Jessie £3,000 which represents half a year’s fees and we are delighted that K-Bis agreed to cover the remaining amount via a scholarship.

Jessie’s mum says, “Thanks to the Starr Trust Jessie is able to continue following her dream with the support of an amazing team of people. I can’t wait to see how she progresses over the next year.
