A huge thank you to the West Wight CAFOD Committee and Slipshod Singers for organising a fantastic fundraising concert at St Saviour’s, Totland Bay on the Isle of Wight in October.
The Slipshod Singers, ably assisted by Janet Hare and her sister Dorothy Green in virtuosic roles, together with a spell binding organ recital from Chris McKay, entertained some 150 guests to an evening of folk songs and choral presentations, culminating in a magnificent ‘Last Night of the Proms’ finale.
The theme of the night was to ‘Feed the World’ and draw attention to the one in eight people on our planet who will go to bed hungry tonight.
Concert goers were also asked to support CAFOD’s ‘Hungry for Change’ campaign which calls on the government to put checks on the power of global food companies and support small scale farmers who grow 50% of the world’s food but make up half the world’s hungry people.
£1,260 was raised on the night to support CAFOD’s work which is just brilliant!
Thank you very much to all those who organised such a great event, the Slipshod Singers and their special guests and to everyone who attended.
