Police Voice Squad Raising Money for Poor in Africa
The Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Ian Johnston, is an enthusiastic supporter of the choir and will be among those attending the concert which will be held at the Millennium Hall in Garndiffaith at 7pm on Saturday, September 13th.
In an evening which promises to be jam-packed full of musical entertainment, the choir will be accompanied by talented local singer, Ben Powell and the established Torfaen ladies choir - the Linden Singers.
Formed in 1969 by Sergeant William Bosustow, the main aim of the Gwent Police choir is to raise money for charity. The proceeds from this concert will be used to support the work of the Abundant Life Living Hope International Missions (ALLHIM) charity which aims to help provide a better life for orphans, widows, the poor and those suffering from AIDS in various communities in East Africa.
Encouraging people to come and see the concert, Mr Johnston, said: "The choir is one of the traditions that form part of the family value aspects of Gwent Police Force. They represent Gwent Police and engage with large parts of our community locally and nationally. They do a fantastic job as Ambassador's for the Force externally and it's a fine tradition that we are really proud of here.
Why not join us for an evening of entertainment and help us raise some much needed funds for a worthy cause?"
The concert will start at 7pm and tickets are £5.00 per person. They will be available at the door on the evening or by contacting John Williams in advance on 01495 448 261.
