Singing for Change

General • 4th April 2017

On Wednesday 26th April Archbishop Holgate’s school are hosting a visit by the Abaana New Life Choir from Uganda. This is part of a larger tour taking place from February until the end of May. Twenty children will be touring Great Britain and Northern Ireland with the purpose of performing fantastic live African choir music. During their stay the children will be staying with local families, time in lessons and several short concerts for pupils. Their stay will culminate in this final ‘one-off’ fundraising concert on Wednesday 26th April open to everyone.

Entry to the concert is FREE, but as part of the evening there will be an opportunity to contribute to funds in support of the ongoing work of Abaana. These funds will go towards their work with education and orphaned street children.

Abaana is a Christian based charity which invests in Children in Africa, helping them to break the chains of poverty, through education. Most of their projects are in Uganda, working in 13 locations supporting the children and parents in those communities. They have been able to build 13 schools, support churches and sponsor over 1,300 children as well as working with children on the streets, among other projects. Abaana has raised over £1,000,000 to help build schools, medical projects, water pumps and support many children in need.

This concert is another example of Archbishop Holgates  ‘Being the change we want to see’ in the world through a fantastic creative event. Come along, hear the stories and be inspired.

The ‘Abaana New Life Choir’ concert will be at Archbishop Holgate’s School on Wednesday 26th April starting at 7pm.
