BBC Young Musican donates fees to save cello teaching at his schoolmain
The cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, BBC Young Musician of the Year, has given £3,000 to his former school to ensure the cello is taught there for the next three years.
Sheku saved the money from his concert fees after hearing that the music department was under threat of closure at Trinity Catholic School in Aspley, Notts.
His mother said: ‘Sheku was heartbroken when he heard that cello teaching was to be taken away at Trinity School.’
