Fundraising Concert: Police Choir and two Guitar styles

Sat 11th March 2017 at 19.05 - 21.30

Here's an exciting fundraising concert - raising money for ex-street children in Malawi with the Steka project and also for vulnerable people in Edinburgh with the Thistle Foundation.

It's been a few years since Portobello Rotary organised fundraising concert, so there's been quite a learning curve - but an enjoyable one.

This time, club members want to help  young  people in two different communities - we're all working hard to support the Steka project, where the latest phase is to work for a place where ex-street children will gain the skills they need to support themselves - and, ultimately, their families also.

But every Rotary club reflects its community and supports projects whih  meaning for its members:and so, Portobello is fundraising also for the Thistle Foundation in Craigmillar, a charity which works to help vulnerable  people.

There's an exciting programme planned for the concert on Saturday evening 11th March at Portobello and Joppa Parish Church in Abercorn Terrace (the church which used to be St Phillips): The acclaimed Edinburgh Police Choir, Tony Mitchell on guitar accompanied by Maureen Brack as vocalist: and David Luhanga, who comes from Malawi, too, also playing guitar, but in a completely different style.

Tickets are £10, which includes the entertainment, refreshments at the interval and the free programme - available from all club members or from various shops like the Salvation Army,  Top Hat, the Skylark and Live Laugh Love Hair & Beauty in Portobello High Street. They are also available online through Eventbrite here: (though that means paying a small additional admin fee).

Doors open 7pm for a 7.30pm start. All the active club members are working together to host a great evening, so please come and help these charities - it will be a great evening!
