community choir Calder Valley Voices are holding their annual concert on Thursday, June 28.

The concert will feature songs from around the world ranging in style from the beautiful Maori lullaby “Hine e hine” to the ever popular “Moon River”. The songs will also include “Rain” written by the South African group Ladysmith Black Mambazo asking for “rain, beautiful rain” to fall!

The concert is being held in the Methodist Church in Hebden Bridge, opposite the Co-op, and starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £6/4 and £1 for schoolchildren and available on the door. Delicious homemade cakes and refreshments will be served in the interval.

All proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Comedor Madre Teresa de Calcutta street children’s shelter in San Luis, Argentina.

The shelter supports 600 “street” children, and receives no government funding and so is totally reliant on donations from local people and organisations.

They need money to enable them to buy food, clothing, shoes and medicines for the children.

Calder Valley Voices meet every Thursday in term time at the Methodist Church Hall in Hebden Bridge 7.15pm to 9.30pm.

New members are always welcome and are offered a free taster session.
