Old Buckenham help for homeless

Music can help

The Liquorice Allsorts Clarinet Quartet, championed by Pauline Dixon of Puddledock, together with the New Buckenham Silver Band are providing a concert entitled 'Music from around the World'. This event is to raise much needed funding for St Martins Charity, whose aim is to eradicate sleeping on the streets of Norfolk by providing emergency temporary accommodation, including the only Night Shelter within Norfolk. Funding is paramount at the present time to furnish the recently acquired property at Lakenfields, primarily for homeless persons with mental disorders, and two units to accommodate disabled people. Regretfully in excess of fifty persons found sleeping on the streets of Norfolk last year suffer some form on mental problem.
Old Buckenham has a history of supporting the St Martins charity. 
Please try to support this concert, perhaps villagers could get together and a few car loads can be organised. Tickets available from Mike on 01953 860462 cost just £10, which include a glass of wine and a “bite".  All costs have been sponsored and each ticket sold will provide the full £10 for the charity.
