Michael Thompson, representing the Sunbeams Music For Life Trust, receives a cheque for £250 from Lynda Nineham, Personal Assistant to CREA Executive Director Bob Clarke, with members of the CREA staff looking on. The amount was raised from the staff, based at Redhills, near Penrith, making a donation rather than sending gifts and cards to colleagues at Christmas. Also on the front row are Peter Mallyon, friend of the Trust, and Annie Mawson, Founder of Sunbeams (Saturday 19th January 2008).

Brightening lives: Members of Carlisle Rotary Club South present a cheque for £500 to Annie Mawson from Sunbeams Trust. The cash will go towards the building of a new music centre for the Trust. David Galloway hands over a cheque to Annie Mawson, watched by David Nicholson and Michael Tuddenham, with a model of the planned centre (Friday 25th January 2008).
The Cumberland News Charitable Trust Fund has donated £500 to Annie Mawson's Sunbeams Music Trust, which helps disadvantaged people improve their quality of life and self esteem through the creative freedom of music. There are over 70 Sunbeams projects running in the north of England. This money will be used to help towards the expenses of the Sunbeams Concert Troupe.
