Our first concert of the new season will be in aid of Cara Coweth Water, Sierra Leone.
Cara Coweth is a charity founded in Stithians, Cara Coweth being Cornish for “A caring group of people working together” and the aim is to raise money to build clean drinking water wells in rural areas of Sierra Leone.The money sent covers the cost of the materials, many of which are given at a discounted price by local businesses. The wells themselves are hand-dug by the local people.

The availability of clean water doesn’t only benefit health. Children usually head out into the jungle in the mornings to find water to carry home. The time spent doing this prevents them from going to school, therefore with water available on their doorstep the children can go to school and improve their prospects for the future.
Pictured below is the first official well, which was presented to the people of Lungi Village on the 5th April 2013. Future plans include more wells and funding for solar panels to run the generators at Madina. £10,000 needs to be raised so that renewable energy can replace costly fuel.
The choir is honoured and delighted to be able to support this remarkable charity and we would love all our friends and followers to join us at the concert so that we can raise lots of money.
Here are the details:-
SATURDAY APRIL 16th 7.30pm at the Church of St John the Baptist, Camborne.
Plenty of parking available. Admission free with donations invited. Refreshments and raffle afterwards. Guest appearance by the ever popular Glee Singers.
