He had successfully applied to the Soroptimist club’s charitable trust, the Minnis Trust, for a grant to attend the World Youth Guitar Festival held last year inLeicester. To show his appreciation, he offered to entertain Soroptimist members at their Christmas dinner meeting, held at Ingleside House.
