Big gospel concert for High Wycombe



The fund established by the High Commission for St Vincent and the Grenadines, London, which raises funds for Vincentian School Children in need, will benefit from a Specially Organized Gospel Music Extravaganza which will take place in High Wycombe on Saturday, 5 July, 2008.{{more}}

The event, which has been organized by the Men’s Christian Fellowship of Sands Seventh-Day Adventist Church, following discussions with the Counsellor, Carolin de Freitas-Sawh at the High Commission for St Vincent and the Grenadines, London, will feature, among other acts, the internationally acclaimed Croydon SDA Gospel Choir. The Choir has previously appeared on BBC’s EastEnders, Songs of Praise, Choir of the Year and Paradise Heights.

Joel Williams, one of the organizers of the event, said ‘we are very excited that Croydon SDA Gospel Choir has agreed to perform at the concert’.

The High Commissioner, Cenio E. Lewis, added: ‘We are pleased that nationals and others in the UK have made this fund raising project the success that it has been over the past few years. We appreciate the enormous efforts which have been made by individuals to ensure that we can continue to help needy school children in St Vincent and the Grenadines…We are sure that this concert will be a success, and we hope it can become an annual fixture in our event’s calendar’

Last Month, Jimmy DaSantos, a Vincentian, organized a dance in Wellingbourgh, UK, to raise funds for the same appeal. The High Commissioner and Counsellor represented the Mission at the dance, which was attended and enjoyed by the nationals and friends of St Vincent and the Grenadines. Jimmy said: ‘We are doing this for the children…and are grateful to Mr Straton ‘Supersonic’ Mercury for providing the music’.

Next month’s Gospel Concert will take place at St Andrew’s Church, Hatters Lane, High Wycombe, Bucks, HP13 7NJ, at 20:00hrs, entrance fee £5. For more information and tickets, contact Joel Williams on 01494 533905, Tess 01494 526200 Noel Thomas 07716064735 or email David DaSilva on
