A CHRISTMAS community concert is set to bring joy and festive cheer to Malvern Wells later this month whilst raising money for charity.
‘Sing a Song of Christmas’, organised by Malvern Wells Parish Council, is a free festive celebration event with suggested donations on the night go to Malvern Special Families who run play schemes for children with disabilities.
The concert takes place at 7.30pm on Friday, December 15 at the village hall in Malvern Wells.
It also happens on Local Charities Day, a national scheme which celebrates the power and positivity of small charities.
A short talk on the night will highlight the work MSF does in town.
Cassie Zoro, community fund-raiser at MSF, said: “Please come along and support this fantastic community event.
“The night is guaranteed to get you in the Christmas spirit, with fantastic live music by the Wells Singers and Malvern Wells Primary School Choir.
“There will be wonderful carols, Christmas readings and mince pies – so come and celebrate the joy of Christmas with your local community.”
Coun Jackie Smethurst, vice-chairman of Malvern Wells Parish Council, added it was important the authority got involved in Local Charities Day to give charities like MSF a ‘much-needed’ boost.
“It’s excellent that the UK government are promoting Local Charities Day to focus the nation’s seasonal generosity towards our many small, but deserving, local charities,” she said.
“These organisations depend on volunteers who don’t have the support of large, national infrastructure and awareness-generation, meaning all the hard work falls on far fewer dedicated shoulders.”
