Utako Ikeda was a wonderful flute player, teacher, and a close friend of Jessie’s family. She was also a loyal supporter of Jessie’s Fund, and would be pleased to think that the concert in her memory on Saturday 7th July was in aid of Jessie’s Fund, and played by colleague friends, students and family.
A great audience came to support the event and enjoyed not only a varied concert, but also the drinks, nibbles and chat afterwards. Donations in memory of Utako amounted to just over £1,000, which is in addition to the funds donated at the time of her funeral in May last year, bring the total to almost £2,200. Thank you to all who have been so generous.
