Everyone of us has been moved in some way by the horrific events in West London. Notwithstanding the absolute horror of what was witnessed by those caught in the blaze at Grenfell Tower, the victims of this awful tragedy are left without a home and belongings while facing a future of uncertainty and, for many, the huge loss of loved ones. In the face of such adversity, communities show their true strength, courage and generosity. That is clearly evident in London right now.
In our own communities we wonder how we can possibly help to assist the people who have suffered as a result of such tragedy.
A number of local choirs and vocal groups have taken action and are presenting a charity concert, Voices for Grenfell arranged for Monday 10th July at The Burton Town Hall to raise vital funds for the victims and their families. A full evening’s programme of entertainment has been arranged with local vocalists and musicians giving up their time for this worthy cause. Performers will include Burton Musical Theatre Company, Friday Voices, Ocho, and Fusion along with a number of very talented soloists. In addition, Chillwell Military Wives Choir will also be performing.
This event will be not only be a night of quality music but an opportunity to pay our respects to those suffering while taking time to appreciate what we have and ultimately, we want to raise a substantial amount.
All proceeds from this concert will be sent to The British Red Cross specific appeal which is co-ordinating financial donations.
