Teddington-based Rockschool donate £3,000 to Kingston Hospital Charity

28 July 2020

Global Awarding Body and music education providers, RSL Awards, have made a donation of £3,000 to Kingston Hospital Charity.

The Teddington-based company ran a campaign during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak, where £5 from every Rockschool Graded Music Exam entry would be donated to the official charity of Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Thanks to the dedication of all of RSL Awards’ customers continuing to enter for their Rockschool exams during the challenging lockdown period in May 2020, Norton York, Founder of RSL, and John Simpson, CEO of RSL, visited Kingston Hospital to present a cheque for £3,000 to Chairman, Sian Bates.

Chairman of Kingston Hospital, Sian Bates, said: “I would like to extend my warmest thanks to RSL for their donation to Kingston Hospital Charity. Your generosity will make a significant difference to our patients and staff – thank you for thinking of Kingston Hospital.”

CEO of RSL Awards, John Simpson, said: “As a team, we are continually humbled by the courageous acts of the NHS, and also our loyal customers for having the confidence in us to continue to provide the very best academically rigorous qualifications and graded music exam solutions. We’re delighted to be able to present this cheque for £3000, that we hope will go some way to support the needs of our NHS heroes.”

The leading contemporary exam board, RSL Awards, are always looking at ways to advance their product offering, so students studying towards an RSL Awards qualification can still be certificated after putting in the hours of practise and dedication to mastering their art. Thanks to the implementation of RSL’s video examinations, they were quickly able to provide an exam solution that gave that opportunity to a wealth of musicians during the height of lockdown restrictions, all whilst raising £5 from each exam entered over this difficult period.
