Saturday 27th June 2020 at 7pm at Bracon Hall, Norfolk

BRIT Award winning vocal group BLAKE, in association with Norfolk Community Foundation and Yana, are delighted to announce a forthcoming Summer Prom in aid of The Rose Berney Memorial Fund. Enjoy an evening of beautiful music while raising money for mental health support and suicide prevention in Norfolk.

The Rose Berney Memorial Fund – supporting mental health and suicide prevention

Humphrey Berney of BLAKE explains his motivation for starting the Fund:

“In 2005 my sister Rose took her own life after a long and difficult battle with her mental health. Her journey and death highlighted the inadequate support in Norfolk for those with mental health issues and since her death, I am very sad to say things have not improved.

We have established The Rose Berney Memorial Fund to raise money to help some of the brilliant organisations working hard to support those in need. I am very pleased to say that we are now working with Norfolk Community Foundation, a brilliant team involved with and helping so many of these grassroots organisations. This concert – Last Night of the Proms at Bracon Hall performed by Classical Brit Award winning group BLAKE – is not only about raising much needed money but also to help raise awareness of the vital importance of mental health support and suicide prevention, in association with Norfolk Community Foundation and Yana.

Please support us to help those in need and save lives in Norfolk.”
