End Polio Now Crocus Concerts

  • by


The two “Crocus Concerts” this year will be held in St Mary’s Church Horsefair on Thursday 5th and Tuesday 10th March, both beginning at 7.15pm.

The 6500 additional crocus bulbs planted by students and Rotarians on school sites, in Princess Diana Park, Bridge Street Park, at Sanctuary Housing’s Retirement Living Schemes and in St Mary’s Churchyard will hopefully be in bloom. The fundraising target is again £1 per crocus planted.

The venue is booked. The schools have chosen their music. Harry has delivered posters, flyers and tickets to each school. Roger has sent invitations to all on our guest list. Heads and Chairs of Governing bodies have all been invited.

We planted some 6,500 crocus bulbs back in the autumn and our fundraising target is once again £1 a crocus. Last year the project enabled 45,000 children to be immunised. This year it would be nearly 60,000 if we reach the target.

The challenge for each school is to sell 75 tickets. That leaves us with 50 tickets to sell through Rotary for each night and 50 to sell to the public via the box office at Fashion Fabrics. So – please support if you can by taking posters/flyers, buying tickets, letting people know how enjoyable last year’s concerts were and inviting them to come along. Just £5 a ticket!
