A TALENTED Bromsgrove musician left a generous £15,000 donation to the Primrose Hospice in his will.

The St Godwald’s Road hospice received the incredible amount of money from the sale of David Wadhams house, after his death on April 1, 2018.

His sister-in-law Jane Tandy said: “David used the hospice and enjoyed the complementary therapies.

“He found it to be a very positive and enhancing experience when he was there.

“By donating such large amounts to cancer charities and the hospice he hoped it would help others utilise the facilities that meant so much to him in his latter months.”

David was born in Singapore but moved back to the UK as a child, attending High Wycombe Grammar School, Henry Box Grammar School in Oxfordshire and, after his A Levels, London College of Music.

A talented musician, he played piano, keyboards, guitar and also sang.

He set up his own music studio in Bromsgrove on Granary Road, established himself as a music teacher, and continued to perform in bars and clubs.

He had links with Birmingham Conservatoire, holding Sunday afternoon concerts at home for its young students, and was one of the organisers of Hagley Music Festival.

Emma Williams, fundraising manager at Primrose Hospice, thanked David and his family for the generous donation.

“David was a man who gave his time so generously to others during his lifetime and even after his death he is still making a difference.

“The incredibly generous donation will make a huge difference to our hospice and means we can continue to provide the services to others.

“A gift in your will is a lovely way to support Primrose Hospice and will help secure the care of patients with cancer and other life-limiting conditions in the future.”
