A Prefab Sprout fan page has been set up support the work of the Sage in Gateshead, which has had links to Wendy Smith in recent years. This organisation aims to tangibly change the world (at least for the participants) with music via its charitable work.
This isn't a band or Wendy endorsed site in any way - the initiative came from the fan side - but I'm told that Wendy has been told about it and was touched that we remembered her and were willing to contribute.
The link to the charity is here.
The Sage have passed on the following message:
And lastly, at time of writing, the total donated was around £185!“We’re very grateful that you’ve all chosen to support our work with your generous donations and we’ll keep you posted on how the fundraising goes. The Sage Gateshead is the home of music in the North East of England and we’re very proud to have Wendy in our family, so it’s fantastic that support for Prefab Sprout has prompted these generous donations. If anyone wants to learn more about how their gifts will help support the future of music for everyone from under fives to over fifties, they can have a look at our website which gives a bit more information on why donations are so vital to our work: http://www.thesagegateshead.org/support ... duals.aspx and http://www.thesagegateshead.org/l_and_p/. A huge thank you to you all, from everyone at The Sage Gateshead!”
