Cathy Bereznicki


Our wonderful Cathy died in February 2016, aged 62, following heart surgery. She was a champion of opportunities for young people and dedicated so much energy and enthusiam to the work of Ignite!.

Cathy was a long-serving member of the west London choir the Addison Singers and performed regularly at their concerts.

We continue our work at Ignite! in Cathy's honour, to bring creativity and opportunities to children and young people. Cathy lives on within Ignite!.
