Horn of Africa Concert

Yesterday there was a wonderful event at Christ Church, Frome. It was a twelve hour musical concert held to raise money to support those people suffering due to the famine in the Horn of Africa. It was organised by Ann Burgess, a long term friend of Berkley School. She asked if we would bring along a group of children to take part in the concert and I suggested that it would be even better if more schools were involved – so I got busy organising  and was pleased to find some enthusiastic teachers in other schools who agreed to take  part.

Everyone arrived for our 11 o’clock  slot and joined together to sing the African songs that we had all been learning. We also enjoyed learning some ‘call and response’ African songs, along with the audience, who joined in too.

I was delighted to hear from Ann today. The total raised yesterday was just about £3,500 which is a wonderful total. I can only imagine how many families this will help and how many lives this will save. So to all the Berkley children and parents and staff who attended or gave contributions,  thank you so very much and may God bless you all.
