At Banbury Rotary Club’s Children Singing for Children Concerts earlier this month 600 children from 25 local primary schools raised £7,000 for children’s charities!
Organiser Jonathan Meredith said, “Many, many thanks and congratulations to all the children and staff involved in making this year’s concerts another resounding success. The spine-tingling finales were matched once more by the individual school performances, which get better every year.”
Of the total raised for the chosen charities 70% will go to Banbury Sunshine Centre and 20% will be shared equally between Banbury Rotary Club’s Schools Projects in Sierra Leone and The Gambia. The remaining 10% will go to other local Rotary Children’s Charities in the period up to June 30th 2019.
Each school that took part receives a commemorative certificate and each individual child a smaller version of the same certificate.
