BBT hopes to continue supporting talented young musicians far into the future with our network of support, counsel, enablement and financial assistance. As well as the generosity of our founding patron, we also welcome the goodwill of others who recognise the value of what we do. Any legacy, large or small, further reinforces our work in recognising the importance of nurturing young talent and for the benefit of the wider cultural community. We would be happy to discuss ideas and practicalities with anybody wishing to provide for BBT in their will.
To discuss leaving a legacy to BBT please contact:
Chief Executive Susan Rivers.
I think in today’s world young musicians need the kind of special help and support the BBT is giving to so many people. For me, it has been a very generous help without which some projects would not have been possible… I have a huge admiration for what BBT have done, are doing, and will do in the future. Their generosity and enthusiasm is greatly needed and appreciated by all.

Bradford born, Christine Mill read Geography at Cambridge, where she was awarded a Double Blue in sport. After a spell teaching, she moved into planning, first in local government and then in her own practice in Kensington and Chelsea. She was awarded a Fellowship of the Royal Town Planning Institute, of which she was a member for 49 years.
She and her husband Ian had no children, but she was a believer in education and especially nurturing ability. She was also a lover of the arts, and first made herself known to the Borletti-Buitoni Trust at the Tenth Anniversary celebrations at Southbank Centre in May 2013, whereupon she was delighted to be in a position to offer a generous legacy to the Trust.
