BRACKLEY musician Charlotte Tomkinson is recording an album of her own heartfelt songs to help raise money for people with eating disorders.
Ms Tomkinson, 26, has battled with anorexia for 11 years, which she says was brought on by bullying at school.
She said: “I’ve lost 11 years of my life and I don’t want to see others suffer. Hopefully there are some songs on there that will give people a greater understanding.
“I want to make it clear that I am still very much battling with the condition, but I’m lucky enough to have a fantastic producer Jeremy Carroll and some great musicians.”
Ms Tomkinson hopes the project will raise funds and awareness of Emma’s Trust for Eating Disorders. The charity was set up ten years ago in memory of 19-year-old Emma Varney of Towcester who passed away in 2001 after suffering from an eating disorder.
Ms Tomkinson is hoping for an autumn release on iTunes for the self-penned album entitled Gypsy. To find out more about the project or to make a donation to help complete the album visit www.facebook.com/gypsyalbum
