Christmas Concert supports local Food Bank
Antiphon is teaming up with West Northumberland Food Bank for a pre-Christmas evening concert of jollity and wassailing on Tuesday 19th December. The event, “Welcome Yule!” is to take place in Hexham’s Trinity Methodist Church hall, starting at 7.30 p.m. All proceeds will go to boost the Food Bank’s work over the Christmas season.
Antiphon conductor John Roper is looking forward to an evening with a difference, commenting, “This will be a chance for the choir to let its collective hair down! There will be a real mixture of well-known and lesser-known Christmas items, both old and new, plenty of references to food and drink, and the chance for the audience to join in. Some of this will be new ground for the choir, but we're always up for a challenge, to have good fun as well as singing good music, and all for such an essential cause.”
WNFB co-ordinator Sam Gilchrist is understandably keen on the event, adding, “We are extremely grateful to Antiphon for this opportunity to raise much needed funds for the Food Bank. Over the last year we have been dealing with a 133% increase in demand from households struggling to make ends meet. Our community has always been so generous in their support for our work which just goes to show how much we all care about our neighbours in times of hardship. Christmas time can be especially worrying for many of the people we support.”
Refreshments will be served, and there will be the opportunity to make additional cash donations during the evening.
