I am a young singer/actress and recently found that I had nodules on my vocal chords. I needed an urgent operation in order to fulfil a contract, due to start in a couple of months. Equity Charitable Trust generously helped fund this as I couldn’t wait for the National Health service and I was able to take the job, which was terrific. Without the Trust’s funding I am sure I wouldn’t have been able to continue my singing career in the foreseeable future. I’d really like to thank them for their support.
