11-year-old English Girl with Autism Sings to Raise Money for World Vision’s Global Coronavirus Appeal

Lydia sings to help other vulnerable children in lockdown

An 11-year-old girl with autism from the South of England has been honoured as one of World Vision’s hidden heroes.

Lydia is a member of Aylesbury’s British Theatre Academy group and had been rehearsing hard for a local performance of West End hit Oliver!, when the coronavirus lockdown started and the performance was cancelled.

So, when a friend from Berrysfield Church suggested an opportunity to perform the songs she’d been practising for members of the congregation via Zoom, Lydia jumped at the chance. And remarkably she chose to use it to help other children, by raising money for World Vision’s Global coronavirus appeal.

“Matthew he’s from our church and he said ‘would you like to do it in front of the church and raise money for a charity?’” explains Lydia.
