Hello from the Crispin Aubrey Legacy Fund!

Its been a while since our last newsletter and we wanted to let you know about all the exciting developments that have been happening here at the fund since we last wrote. Along with our current scholars Emma Stanfield and Rhys Buchanan we are pleased to announce that we will be supporting two new scholars for 2017, Michael Rossiter and Holly Clemens - read more about them here

Back in November we held our fourth legacy walk in Hackney which was a great success raising over £700 for the fund. In other developments we are very pleased to announce that CALF together with Statewatch have been awarded a grant from Garden Court Chambers to set up an archive of Crispin’s ABC records which will be stored at the MayDay rooms in London. To mark the launch of the archive we are planning to host a series of events to mark the 40th anniversary since the ABC arrests and trial. The first of which will be held at the Arnolfini in Bristol on Friday 3rd November 2017 and we will be sending out further details about this event shortly.  

Thanks to everyone who joined and donated to our fourth legacy walk in Hackney back in November. It was a fascinating and inspiring day and wonderful to reconnect with friends and supporters. Find out more.  

We would like to say a special thanks to all those who have donated, especially to our regular givers. To ensure the long term success and sustainability of CALF we would like to encourage you to sign up to a regular standing order. With just 30 regular givers of £10 a month we would be able to sustain a regular scholarship programme. 

If you would like to make donation or set up a standing order, please complete the gift aid form and return to: Hockpitt Farm, Over Stowey, Somerset TA51EX .  

Emma's month with the Soil Association 
Emma Stanfield joined CALF as our 2016 BA Scholar last year. Emma is hoping to pursue a career in charity PR and her first assignment with CALF was a work placement with the Soil Association in Bristol. Read Emma's Blog about here experiences. Emma has been accepted on to the Ocean Campus Environmental Journalism Course which she will be attending in South Africa this Summer.
Rhys launches new e-zine The Know
Rhys Buchanan was awarded a CALF scholarship in 2015, he has a background in music journalism and is passionate about fighting climate change. Rhys has been mentored by the Guardian's Online Environment editor Adam Vaughan and through the support of the fund has established his own online E-zine called The Know, which brings together his passion for social issues together with his love of music. Here Rhys tells you about The Know in his own words.

The concept behind the already growing website is to act as a platform for musicians in Bristol and Portland to gain exposure internationally. I feel it’s important for the site to use it’s growing following to discuss important issues such as the struggle of local music venues as well as wider ethical and global issues. I attended a Guardian Masterclass which has helped me develop some new feature concepts ranging from the refugee crisis through to an article for Frank Water charity about water sanitisation in India. 

Why Bristol and Portland? Both cities are forward thinking in terms of their political values, creative and collaborative scenes and have a focus away from major music destinations such as London and New York. It offers us a quirky and unusual base to start from and means we have a much bigger reach from the get go. 

The magazine has already been received very well amongst both music scenes, press and PR companies. We were very excited to host a stage at local festival Dot To Dot Bristol and to be chosen to act as a judge for Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent Competition. 

The Crispin Aubrey Legacy funding has been invaluable. It’s given the website a professional appearance and enabled me to move it away from being a Wordpress blog to something with hosting and it’s own URL. This was vital to be taken seriously by PR companies and future advertisers. We’re growing at a fast rate and planning a print issue for the The Know in the Autumn with support from the fund and are looking at advertising to make the publication sustainable in the long term. Read The Know Magazine.
