FANTASTIC flautists Amy and Rebecca Glover braved icy and bitterly cold conditions in December to give Budleigh Salterton shoppers a fantastic festive musical treat and, later this month, Rebecca will present part of the £250 raised to an HIV/Aids Orphanage in South Africa.

Warm-hearted scintillating sisters, Amy and Rebecca, brought festive cheer and uplift with a variety of Christmas carols and songs. They were thrilled with the generosity of shoppers and decided to share the proceeds of their ‘Budleigh Busking’ between the orphanage and the Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood Trust.

Fourteen year old Rebecca leaves Britain on Tuesday, July 13 for a sporting tour of South Africa with Exeter School and she is super sweeper in the Girls’ Hockey team coached by inspirational PE teacher Alison Marsh. Among their tour opponents are Rhenish Girls’ High School (oldest girls’ school in South Africa), Longa township in Capetown and Fairmont High School (one of the few schools in South Africa with an Astroturf pitch).

The day before playing Ixopo High School in rival Zulu Natal, the tour party, through their links with charity ‘Hands on the World Global’ will visit the orphanage and the money donated by generous Budleigh shoppers will reach the needy children. Even though it will be winter in South Africa, it is doubtful it will be as cold as that December day when Rebecca and Amy ‘busked’ in Budleigh.

Whilst Rebecca enjoys the hockey and safaris in South Africa, 19 year old Amy will be working hard in Budleigh’s ‘Slice of Lyme’; having completed her first year at Southampton University. She’s a wonderful waitress.
