Solidarity With Scottish Teen

This note which highlights the solidarity of a Basque troupe of dancers and musicians comes to us thanks to The Edinburgh Paper:

Basque dancers to aid college dream

A FREE demonstration of dancing and music from the Basque country is being held to help raise funds to send a cerebral palsy sufferer to college.

Finola Forman, 16, was born with brain damage and cerebral palsy and hopes to attend Portland residential college in Nottingham when she finishes school.

Unfortunately, Scottish authorities can only provide a fraction of the cost, and so her friends and family have started work to raise the estimated £150,000 cost of the three-year course.

A group of Basque musicians, coming to Edinburgh to perform during the Festival, have agreed to put on two free demonstrations to help raise money for the teen.

The musical evenings are to be held in the Dalriada in Portobello, and collections will be held for Finola.

The events are being held on August 6 at 8pm and August 9 at 7 pm.

Is obvious that this note will not make the headlines in news papers around the world.
