** Thank you to everyone who supported our first JustGiving fundraiser. We have started a new fundraiser page as the original page reached its maximum time duration **
This is Harvey: a gender fluid, autistic, prodigiously talented musician who was a regular at G-A-Y and Heaven, who performed on many of the UK's leading music stages, playing flute, oboe, piano and organ. Harvey also worked to champion marginalised creatives and queer rights.
Harvey's mental health took a terrible turn one night - and Harvey ended their life just before Christmas 2021.
The Harvey Parker Trust has been created to support the mental health wellbeing of others like Harvey: talented young creatives from under-represented communities in need of emotional or mental health support.
The Trust will raise funds to support wellbeing initiatives and help young creatives to develop the skills to better support their own wellbeing.
TO LAUNCH THE TRUST AND SUPPORT THIS VITAL WORK, JOIN US FOR A FUNDRAISING CONCERT FOR THE HARVEY PARKER TRUST AT SOUTHBANK CENTRE LONDON ON APRIL 30 2023 - www.harveyparkertrust.org/events
The LOVE IN MIND concert has an incredible line-up of artists across classical, pop, jazz, and dance music - celebrating the huge variety of music that Harvey loved.
We want to send our thanks to everyone who has donated to help set up the Trust on our first JustGiving page. We were deeply grateful to have raised £84,265 from 3387 compassionate donors.
However, our work to support young, marginalised, diverse creatives with mental health challenges has only just begun.
So we ask, please give generously to help us to support those in need of help - as a way to not only celebrate Harvey's life but to keep the memory of our beautiful Harvey alive.
Please continue to support the Trust: donate via JustGiving.
