It’s taken a bit longer than it should have to post this, but “Thank You!” to everyone who took part in the music marathon last week. It was a terrific day, with 12 hours of non-stop music (well, actually, we heard about Christian Aid a few times… see below).
The day began with Capo 3, regular performers at The Ritz Acoustic Club, then Churchfield Voices from Church field School, with the final act, The Flying Ducks, taking to the stage at 7.45pm for a terrific finale set. We’ll post a full summary of everyone here very shortly, but, for now: again, huge thanks to everyone, and especially for helping us raise over £500 for Christian Aid. The work of Christian Aid is part of our society these days, but it is sobering to remind ourselves that CA began in 1945 as a response to the needs of refugees fleeing all kinds of devastation in post-war Europe. It seems that these same issues remain with us to this day. The music paused for a few times during the day to hear from Jenny Humphreys about this vital work.
Thank you for all you support. More to follow.
