‘Our Parish held our annual Christmas concert on 8th December at Our Lady of England church, presented by the Sandgate Singers. Under their Musical Direction Peter Allwood, they provided a splendid performance of traditional carols, readings and Christmas songs.
‘Audience numbers were down on previous years but their generosity was really wonderful. We are also indebted to the Chemin Neuf Community here at Storrington, for the use of their facilities.
‘During the interval, the parish’s CAFOD Support Group, served mulled wine and hot mince pies in the candle lit cloister, which was greatly enjoyed by audience and choir alike.
‘Final figures are not yet available but thanks to everyone who contributed, we are hoping to be able to give at least £950 for Connect2: El Salvador and our friends in Puentecitos.’
We would like to add our thanks to Trevor, the CAFOD group, the Sandgate Singers, the Parish and the Chemin Neuf Community for their support. If you wanted to hold an event in your parish or school, see our Events Toolkits.
