Warwick-based community choir, Singing for Pleasure, will be hosting a summertime concert in support of Safeline, a Warwickshire based sexual abuse charity, at 7:30pm on Friday, 16 June at St. Paul’s Church, Friars Street, Warwick.
Since releasing news of the concert, Singing for Pleasure have already reported a great response with ticket sales soaring. John Sheldon, musical director for Singing for Pleasure, said: “The choir have been working for six months on a varied programme of music, much of it about the summer time, and have reached an excellent standard. I am very proud of them and am delighted that we can been involved in raising funds for Safeline in this way.”
Neil Henderson, Safeline Chief Executive, said: “We are so grateful for yet another fundraising effort from John and the rest of the team at Singing for Pleasure. Sexual abuse is a difficult subject and it is prevalent within our community; these events help raise awareness of the charity so that people throughout Warwickshire, who are affected by abuse, can find us and access life changing support to help them recover. They also encourage more people to support the charity which enables us to support even more survivors and their families. We’re ever thankful to the choir and can’t wait for the concert.”
Established in 1994, Safeline is a specialised charity working to prevent sexual abuse and support those affected by it. The services are free and Safeline works with people of all ages, genders, and ethnicities. They also support families and friends who are also severely impacted by the abuse of a loved one.
Tickets for the concert are priced at £5 each which includes refreshments and can be bought from either N V HER, Market Place Warwick, or contact Lesley Atkinson on 01926 492741 or online at firstname.lastname@example.org or available on the door.
As demand for the Safeline services continues to grow, Neil Henderson, welcomes this wonderful, local partnership with John and Singing for Pleasure, it is making such a difference to the charity and the people it serves and he cannot thank John and the choir enough for having the courage to support a challenging cause which effects so many people’s lives.
