Shannah’s dream concert with Nicola Benedetti

The young violinist, from Grantown on Spey, in the Highlands, was chosen because of her dedication to raising funds for CLIC Sargent.

To date Shannah has already raised £413 via her online Virgin Money Giving page and is working hard to get her school more involved in fundraising for CLIC Sargent.

Speaking after her performance in front of the1,000 strong audience, Shannah said: “It was amazing, such an honour. Nicola is so caring and so helpful, she is really up for education. It was an amazing experience and I could go and do it all again!”

Nicola is a patron of CLIC Sargent and has supported the charity's popular music and dance fundraising event, Practice-a-thon.
