The Ashmore Park Choir, a community choir based in Wolverhampton, gave a wonderful evening of entertainment at Corpus Christi Church in Ashmore Park on Friday 27th September, to raise funds for CAFOD’s Syria Appeal.
We enjoyed a wide selection of songs including sea shanties, Gilbert and Sullivan, folk songs and show stoppers from Les Miserables and West Side Story.
Julia Hood from CAFOD’s Birmingham office spoke briefly about CAFOD’s work with those affected by the crisis in Syria and this was followed by a very moving solo performance by Denis Billau of ‘The Child Who Asks Why’, which Denis introduced by reminding us of the impact this conflict is having, particularly on children.om Les Miserables and West Side Story.
The event raised a magnificent £620 for the Syria Appeal and we would like to thank all those who helped to organise it: the choir who gave their time and sang so beautifully and everyone who came along and supported it so generously.
