On Saturday 9 March the amazing Pink Floyd tribute band ‘Any Colour You Like’ appeared at St James’ Church in Weybridge for the Doug Lipinski Memorial Charity concert in aid of CAFOD and Nordoff Robbins Music therapy. The concert which was a joint promotion by Julian Lewry Music and Keith Elford (Music at St James) was attended by over 100 people and £650 was raised for CAFOD.
‘Any Colour You Like’ is an 11 piece tribute band playing the hits of Pink Floyd. The band is self-funded and plays for charitable organisations and has raised thousands of pounds for a variety of charities over the years. It was a fantastic sound and visual show with stunning tracks from the ‘Darkside of the Moon’ and ‘Wish You Were Here’ albums being superbly played in a beautiful venue.
CAFOD would like to thank Julian Lewry, Keith Elford, the Pink Floyd tribute band ‘Any Colour You Like’, the organisers at St James’ Church and all the supporters for raising £650 for CAFOD. What a magnificent effort!
As Christmas approaches, you might be beginning to wonder what to buy for your friends or family members. If you’re looking for a sustainable, ethical and unusual present, why not consider giving your loved ones a CAFOD World Gift?
World Gifts are a range of virtual presents that will delight your friends and family, all while transforming the lives of communities and families living in poverty overseas.
You could purchase the Goat that Gives, providing milk and fertiliser for a family, or a Happy Queen Bee to produce honey for families to sell. You could even buy a water supply for a community; ensuring individuals have access to clean, safe water and protecting them from becoming unwell.
All World Gifts are available to buy individually, or you could fundraise within your parish to make it a community effort.
Once you have chosen your gift you will receive a beautiful certificate, explaining how the gift will be used.
Buying a World Gift is a wonderful way to make a lasting difference this Christmas, providing hope to some of the poorest communities living overseas.
