Con­cert for all Sea­sons

Central Leader - - NEWS -

A fundrais­ing con­cert will take place on Au­gust 2 at St Matthewin-the-City for an or­gan­i­sa­tion which sup­ports fam­i­lies go­ing through tough times.

The con­cert also co­in­cides with the first na­tional Loss & Grief Aware­ness Week.

Sea­sons One­hunga is a peer sup­port pro­gramme for chil­dren ex­pe­ri­enc­ing sig­nif­i­cant grief and loss.

The pro­gramme, which is run dur­ing school and af­ter-school, is based on sea­sons of the year so it is easy for chil­dren to un­der­stand.

The chil­dren in­volved are split into groups and led by a ‘‘com­pan­ion’’ and go through re­sources.

The con­cert, Joy­ful Noise, aims to raise money for the project so it can con­tinue the pro­gramme.

Per­form­ers on the night will in­clude Can­te­mus Choir, Opera Fac­tory, St Matthew’s or­gan­ist Michael Bell, Macleans Col­lege Orches­tra, King’s Col­lege Lit­tle Big Band, Late Night Jazz and stu­dents from Waikato Mu­sic School.

Tick­ets to the fundrais­ing con­cert cost $30. Call 636 6368 to pur­chase tick­ets.
