I was invited by news anchor, Susie Fowler-watt to be interviewed on the BBC Look East news couch this week! This was in light to my new campaign - Footwear Footprint..
They filmed in the shop and then interviewed me for the evening news. I’m on the campaign to reduce the landfill implications within the footwear industry with 330 million pairs in the uk alone manufactured a year with most of these ending up in landfill. One pair takes 50 years to decompose with gases and toxins released into our atmosphere due to the manmade materials in use. The way forward is upcyling. Transforming the pairs you don’t wear or old shoes into new designs. Putting off the landfill destiny for another few years! Fast fashion is an issue.

I was very lucky to be interviewed on the BBC Look East News couch alongside fellow soloist, Emma Nuule. The slot was hosted by BBC stalwarts, Stewart White and Amelia Reynolds, discussing our night of performance and singing for the Mudeka Foundation.
It was a dash from the studios to the stage for the night's performance however!

Many know that I was originally trained as a professional actress and singer and the fluidity of the creative arts is very important to me.
I am thrilled to be raising awareness and singing for the Mudeka Foundation show. The foundation was established by Anna Mudeka and raises funds for orphaned children in Zimbabwe. As I too was an orphan, this is especially important to me.
I will be singing solos and alongside Soprano Emma Nuule.
Tickets are still available and the rehearsal was filmed by the BBC with Emma and I sitting on the BBC Look East couch this Friday prior to the show.
Photos are from yesterday's rehearsal.
