The Diocese of Nottingham joins the NSSP

The first year of seed funding has been awarded to the Diocese of Nottingham for the creation of two hubs of excellence around its Multi-Academy Trusts in Derby and Nottinghamshire. Bishop Patrick McKinney commented that he was “delighted that our Diocese is joining the National Schools Singing Programme and grateful to the Hamish Ogston Foundation for supporting the Church in this important area of evangelisation.” Diocesan Chief Operating Officer David Lawes said “Under the leadership of our Director of Music Greg Treloar we will be working with children in our schools to develop musical excellence and create choirs. This financially sustainable programme allows the transmission of musical opportunities over many years to large numbers of boys and girls in our two biggest population centres.”
