Two members of West Kirby United Reformed Church, Donna and Paul Meadows, were so moved by the plight of the homeless on the streets of Liverpool that they have joined with others to take hot food and warm clothing and sleeping bags to those sleeping on the streets. Wirral Community Orchestra members decided to help in this work by collecting warm socks, hats, scarves and gloves to add to Paul's collection to be given freely to those in need. Big thank you to all who gave and supported this great work.
What a fabulous evening! The orchestra together with our guests of the Melrose Ladies Choir, the Sunlight String Quartet plus the talented youngsters with piano and guitar solos, entertained an audience of over 100 to a real celebration of music and song from popular classics to the songs of musicals to songs from all over Europe. A special big thanks to photographer Ole Hansen (www.photographyselect.co.uk) for his superb photographs which capture the spirit of enjoyment of the evening.
