Ms Lyndell Allen

"I was very fortunate to receive the music scholarship from Anglican church of Christ Church the King. Not only was I provided the opportunity to learn and perform with some of the best musicians in Ballarat, but I also gained a family. A collection of humans with some of the warmest hearts and biggest smiles you will ever meet who not only supported my musical career but also cared for me as one of their own. For this I will be eternally grateful".
