On Wednesday December 19, the prestigious Surrey school witnessed a sold out charity concert featuring Elmbridge Choir, violinist Lettice Rowbotham and the Charisma Singers, as a record congregation raised the roof of St George’s Chapel.
There was also a special performance of piece of music written by Thomas, a teenager supported by the charity, which he wrote while working with the music therapists at Shooting Star CHASE.
Following the concert, drinks and nibbles, kindly provided by The Vineking and Tante Marie respectively, were enjoyed while a raffle was drawn. We will let you know how much was raised for Shooting Star CHASE, which has children's hospices in Guildford and Hampton, as soon as the maths is complete.
Many thanks to all who attended and we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you in 2013!
