West End performers help raise funds for Greenhithe church roof with charity concert.
The musical spectacular took place at St Mary Greenhithe in Mounts Road and featured well known hits such as Bring Him Home from hit musical Les Misérables, and Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You. Fourteen professional singers took part in the event on Saturday (January 21).
Church leader, Reverend Andrew Avery, said: “All the professional singers took part for free to help us on our way to raising the funds needed to fix our roof. We are so grateful for their support, as well as to all those who attended. The evening was a fun way to raise funds for an important cause.”
Reverend Avery, added: “As a church we aim to be active in our community, helping to support and care for those who are in need, whether that be through our food pantry to support those in Greenhithe who are struggling to buy food, activities for young people, or groups for children and their parents. We also run our Community Café on a Wednesday where people are offered reasonably priced food and refreshments and can gain access to a range of agencies and professionals such as Citizens Advice. It is fantastic we are £1,000 closer to what we need so our congregation won’t need to put up their umbrellas during services when it rains.”
