In memory of Alice Gross
We are honoured and grateful that the family of Alice Gross have chosen to ask for donations to be made to Youth Music in her memory.
If you would like to contribute to Alice's Youth Music Memorial Fund, you can visit her memorial page here:
Alice’s family issued the following statement on the day of her funeral:
"We have been devastated by the appalling circumstances of Alice’s death. Alice was so spirited, so present, so vital and so full of promise.
We find it almost impossible to understand what has happened and that we have to say goodbye to her. We want Alice’s funeral to focus on the joy of Alice’s life and the joy of having known her.
We would like to thank everyone for being so kind and supportive. We have been moved by the depth of sympathy and compassion around us, not only from close family and friends but also from the local community.
A tribute and donation page has been set up in Alice's memory with Youth Music. We feel this is a fitting tribute to our daughter Alice. She loved music and loved making music and would have wanted other children to experience this joy."
Our thoughts are with Alice's family, relatives and friends at this time.
Music-making is life-changing
We are the National Foundation for Youth Music. Every year, we provide more than 90,000 young people with the opportunity to make music, helping them to overcome the challenges they face in their lives. Our music projects support young people to develop their creative and social skills, make positive contributions to their community and improve their wellbeing.
Our ongoing research allows us to identify the best ways to engage young people and drive fresh thinking in music education. We also provide a growing online community for thousands of music education professionals.
We know that many young people still need our help. Join us in our mission to give every child the chance to make music. Please donate today.
