Amy Winehouse died a year ago this week (July 23 is the anniversary) but the foundation her father Mitch Winehouse started in her name continues to do good for the community.
The Amy Winehouse Foundation aims to provide support for "young people, especially those who are in need by reason of ill health, disability, financial disadvantage or addiction" and one of the major initiatives is the building of a Noah's Ark children's hospice in North London.
The NME spoke to Mr. Winehouse, who said, "There is no children's hospice covering Camden, Islington, Enfield. That's where Amy lived and grew up. They've bought the land, we're gonna help them build it."
The foundation will also fund several scholarships at the Sylvia Young Theatre School.
