PAYCE Foundation Executive Manager Andrea Comastri said it was paramount to support the choir in a time of increased isolation.
“The City of Sydney was making available grants to charities to address the isolation that was brought on by COVID-19 and we saw an opportunity for the Sydney Street Choir,” Mr Comastri said.
“We worked with them to put together an application to obtain that grant so members could continue to participate and feel connected during this crisis.”
Choir Member Michael said the grant was a great example of generosity and ‘Australian spirit’.
“As well as being a collectively creative tool we use with the choir, it helps me with my course I am currently studying at TAFE,” Michael said.
“We’re really blessed to have someone with fearless humility that has a vision to see the things that are handy and practical.”
