A concert at Hope Baptist Chapel brings together two exceptional choirs and links its audience to people from Nepal in what promises to be a wonderful evening of entertainment and a chance to support a good cause.

Holly Barwick, 26-year-old physiotherapist from Hebden Bridge worked at the Khagendra New- Life Home while studying, and then set up First Chance Nepal in 2013 to raise funds for them.

She has been back several times recently and is there at the moment.

The project provides long term residential care for the severely disabled in Kathmandu. The two performing choirs - each with strong local connections are Bradford Women Singers, an inspiring six strong a capella group with two members from Hebden Bridge - one is Holly’s mother, Helen Blackwell.

SHE choir is a 20 strong group of chiefly younger female singers from Manchester.

Tickets on the door £4.00 - £6.00, doors open at 7.00pm.

There will be home- made cakes and refreshments and also collection boxes.
