The Trust has announced the launch of the second year of the Johnny Marr Music Award as part of their commitment to support young musicians.
The Award will provide one person with up to £1,000 funding to go towards musical instruments, recording equipment –or indeed anything they will help them to progress and develop their talents whilst on their musical journey. This Award is to be used toward all forms of music, including vocals.
The £1,000 award is open to any young person living in Salford who can show that they have the potential to make a career in music.
The Salford Foundation Trust, which operates the Johnny Marr Award, has been supporting young people in Salford since 2004 with financial grants aimed at helping children pursue activities and hobbies which their families might not otherwise be able to afford.
Peter Collins CBE, Managing Trustee from The Salford Foundation Trust, said: “We are delighted that John has been able to use the grant funding to such good effect and is already finding success as a musician. We are now inviting applications to the second round of the award and are looking for another young person in Salford who has musical ambitions.”
