COME & SING Handel’s Messiah, a Charity Event for Gaza. Seeking singers and other support for this special performance in Ripon Cathedral on Saturday 18th October.

As the humanitarian crisis in Gaza unfolds, the suffering inflicted on children is the most harrowing of all, and this charity concert is a special way of channelling concern into practical support for families in Gaza, through the
work of Medical Aid for Palestinians www.map-uk.org.

We aim to recruit a chorus of 200 singers, to fill Ripon Cathedral with the glorious music of Handel’s most famous choral work, to raise the roof and reach a target of £2,000 for MAP’s ongoing projects for malnourished children in Gaza.

To join the choir send a message with your email address or email [email protected]. On the day we rehearse from 1pm.

If you prefer not to sing, just come and enjoy the evening performance which begins at 7pm. Book today at www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/handels-messiah-for-gaza-tickets-12825402123 Tickets are £14, plus a small booking fee.

We are also looking for volunteers to help on the day, and if you are busy elsewhere you can still help us reach our target with a donation via
