The Passage runs London’s largest voluntary sector resource centre for homeless and vulnerable people: each day we help up to 200 men and women. Website: www.passage.org.uk
We welcome and treat clients with respect and dignity, and find out what they need and want. We offer professional and appropriate advice and help according to the client’s needs and aspirations. We agree an action plan with clients which is time limited with the aim of supporting clients out of homelessness.
Of the over £4 million a year it costs to keep The Passage going, only 40% is funded from statutory sources; the rest comes from donations from individuals, church organisations, charitable trusts and companies.
About Alexandra Keeley
At just aged six she successfully auditioned for the National Children’s Orchestra. At seven she gained a place at the junior department of the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, where she was the youngest student of her year. She was then one of the youngest musicians ever to be offered a place in the Junior Northern College of Music (JNCM) Orchestra.
At only the age of seven, Alexandra played the Bach Double violin concerto with the Settle Orchestra, this event was filmed and broadcast by the BBC.
She was invited to Clare College, Cambridge where she played with the Director of Music, Graham Ross.
It was only days after Alex had played the Mediation by Thais with the Promenade Concert Orchestra in Morecambe, that she heard that she had been successful in obtaining a place to study at the Menuhin. ITV filmed a piece about Alexandra’s success calling her “a child prodigy”.
Alexandra is beginning to get invitations to play all over the country. She played a sell out concert at the prestigious Grassington Festival where past performers have been people such as Julian Lloyd Webber.
Alexandra is now a student at Guildford Girls School. Her teacher is the Head of Strings at a leading music college. In March Alexandra is going to play one of Mozart’s violin concertos at the Reform Club, Pall Mall.
