Macmillan Cancer Support fundraiser hits right note

Year 3 and 4 pupils host charity concert at Catholic High School in Chester

Children from eight primary schools in Chester and Ellesmere Port sang their hearts out to an audience of family and friends at The Catholic High School in Chester in aid of Macmillan Cancer support charity.

More than 350 children, aged seven to nine, took part in the term-long project learning songs about working together and living in peace with one another.

It concluded with a concert where they performed a collection of songs as a huge primary school choir.

The youngsters from St Werburgh’s and St Columba’s in Hoole, St Theresa’s in Blacon, St Clare’s in Lache, Hoole CE Primary, St Saviour’s in Ellesmere Port, St Luke’s in Frodsham, St Winefride’s in Neston and the University Cathedral Free School performed songs including One Love, The Earth Song and We Are One and Together.

Project co-ordinator Rachael Borman said: “It was been a brilliant day and the children and teachers have all been amazing and worked so hard all term. They have sung fantastically for such a worthy charity and raised £180.

“The highlight of the concert for me was definitely the final song Power in Me - which was pretty fitting to the cause about never giving up. The children filled the hall with their beautiful voices and I couldn’t stop smiling when listening to them”

Throughout the year there will be several more big sings focusing on different year groups taking part and all money raised will go to Macmillan.
