Call to sup­port con­cert in aid of Sand­pipers

Midweek Visiter - - News -

FRIENDS of Sand­pipers are hop­ing the South­port com­mu­nity will sup­port their fundrais­ing con­cert.

Brass and Vo­cals will be per­formed on Satur­day, Novem­ber 11 from 7.30pm at the Sal­va­tion Army on Shake­speare Street.

It will fea­ture mem­bers of the Sal­va­tion Army Band along with other guest mu­si­cians, solo vo­cal­ists and a choir.

The evening will also ac­knowl­edge that the fol­low­ing day is Re­mem­brance Sun­day and those who gave their lives will be re­mem­bered.

Friends chair­man, Brenda Porter em­pha­sised the im­por­tance of the group’s sup­port for Re­vi­talise Sand­pipers, which pro­vides hol­i­day respite for those with dis­abil­i­ties – some pro­found – and car­ers.

All funds will go di­rect to Sand­pipers for the ben­e­fit of their guests.

The South­port cen­tre, which is one of three Re­vi­talise es­tab­lish­ments in the coun­try but the only one in the North West, is ideally lo­cated over­look­ing the Ma­rine Lake and within dis­tance of so many places that give sup­port to the many ex­cur­sions within the hol­i­day pro­gramme.

Brenda said: “We all take for granted hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity of tak­ing a hol­i­day.

“How­ever for peo­ple with a dis­abil­ity, they don’t al­ways have that lux­ury.

“Sand­pipers not only pro­vides that much needed break but all that goes with it.

“An ex­cel­lent and ap­pro­pri­ate en­vi­ron­ment, ex­cur­sions tak­ing ad­van­tage of the fa­cil­i­ties within the north­west, in­house daily en­ter­tain­ment and ac­tiv­i­ties, great food, and peace of mind with a 24-hour nurse-led ser­vice on hand and peo­ple around you that care.

“Please sup­port us at our con­cert. It is for a wor­thy cause and it will be a great night of en­ter­tain­ment.”

Friends of Sand­pipers Con­cert – Brass and Vo­cal will be held at South­port Sal­va­tion Army, 65 Shake­speare Street.

Tick­ets are avail­able for £6 from the Sal­va­tion Army or Brenda Porter who can be con­tacted on 01703 579747 or brenda. porter@talk­talk.net.
