The Carole Cable Memorial Fund
was set up to commemorate the life and work of Carole
founder and first Musical Director of Barking Operatic Society, who
died in May 1997. An initial target of £5,000 was achieved from
donations in her memory and the Fund was launched in November 1997.
The purpose of the Fund is to provide financial assistance for young
musicians of Barking and Dagenham to further their musical talent and
education, for example through awards for musical instruments, music
lessons or other music-related experiences.
The CCMF is continually boosted by donations in response to mail-shots
and by fundraising events and it aims to make annual awards of
£500 to individual applicants.
Application to the Fund should be made to Phillip Cable,
CCMF Representative, via the Barking MAD website and applicants will be
required to complete an application form giving information on such
things as :-
• Reasons for application;
• Musical achievement to date;
• What money has been raised by the applicant
him/herself towards the required musical item(s)/experience.
