Classic Ibiza at Bowood House is delighted to be supporting The JGM Trust, which was established in memory of Joshua Gareth Moon, an incredibly talented musician, and Classic Ibiza sound engineer, who sadly lost his battle with mental illness last year.
Launched by Josh’s family, The JGM Trust seeks to continue his legacy by supporting people as they navigate their musical careers. Josh’s love for music was matched by his passion for helping people realise their potential by encouraging them to push the boundaries of their talent in a caring and generous way. During its first year, while working towards charity status (pending), The JGM Trust has conducted research into how it can support the wellbeing of those within the industry, specifically those working in a freelance capacity. Josh had also amassed a large array of specialist equipment and, reflecting his generous spirit, the process has begun to find ways to use it to help others.
Josh’s Mum, Susanna Goldsworthy: “Josh quietly came alongside so many people, offering his support and encouragement. Even when wrestling with his own debilitating emotional struggles, his first concern was to do whatever he could to care for and help others – such was his beautiful heart. As his family, the devastating loss we feel is and always will be indescribable but through our heartbreak, we feel passionately committed to try to honour him and his name through our care and concern for the wellbeing of other musicians.”
There will be various fundraising initiatives taking place on the evening, including a £2.50 donation from every set-list lanyard sold, a recommended £5 donation from press and guest-list entries, as well as collection points at all entry and exit gates. Further funds will be raised at The JGM Trust shop, selling a range of fun merchandise. A GoFundMe page has also been established for those people wanting to donate beforehand.
Classic Ibiza’s Lisa Ward: “Josh was an integral member of our team, but first and foremost an incredible human being. His passion for music and humility shone through every time you met him. With our show on the Saturday already sold out, we hope we can raise considerable funds to help to continue his legacy.”
