Family set up Alice Gross' Youth Music Memorial Fund

In 2014, teenager Alice Gross was murdered. Alice was a keen musician, who wrote and sang her own songs. She played the violin and piano and could turn her hand to any instrument - she was learning the guitar and hoped, eventually, to have a career in music.

Following Alice's death, her family created Alice’s Youth Music Memorial Fund in her honour.

Through donations, concerts, musical events and sports challenges, the fund has so far raised over £70,000, and continues to grow.

Alice’s mum Ros says, "We have been astonished by the continuing support of the public for Alice's Youth Music Memorial Fund, which we hope will grow and provide a sustainable legacy of music-making for disadvantaged children.

"We would like to thank all those who have donated or given up their time to organise collections or put on gigs in tribute to Alice's memory.

"Youth Music does such great work reaching out to young people in challenging circumstances and I know Alice would have been delighted that others were given music-making opportunities they might otherwise have missed out on through the money raised in her name."
