Ealing Choral Society Carol Concert
Raising funds to help The Volunteer Link Scheme tackle isolation, through a charity Carol Concert on Saturday 16th December, 7pm.
Raising money for
Volunteer Link Scheme
The Ealing Choral Society is an 80 member strong choir, performing concerts in Ealing, London, and occasionally abroad.
Each year, they put on a popular Carol Concert at St Barnabas Church in Ealing, to support a charity.
This year, the Choral Society have chosen The Volunteer Link Scheme (VLS) as their charity.
The VLS is a local Ealing charity, committed to reaching some of the most isolated people in our communities- those who are housebound, and receiving few or no visits. This is done by recruiting and training volunteer 'befrienders' who are then 'linked' with a person experiencing isolation. The volunteer will then make weekly visits for up to 2 hours, providing emotional support, and perhaps chatting over a cup of tea.
For some clients, they would love to be able to get out the house, and cannot do so without support. In these situations, volunteers are able to accompany the client on short trips to the shops, a local cafe, or a park. This makes a huge difference to those who would otherwise be stuck indoors.
The Volunteer Link Scheme believe that nobody should have to pay for friendship, therefore they offer this service free of charge.
Carol Concert in support of Volunteer Link
The Ealing Choral Society's popular Carol Concert attracts many members of the community to hear the performances, and also join in with singing some much loved carols.
Each year, a charity is chosen to support, and this year, ECS have chosen The Volunteer Link Scheme.
All the proceeds from the concert will go towards the charity, who are making a big difference in our borough.
We would like to raise as much money as possible, so if you are unable to attend and would like to make a donation towards the work of the charity, or are planning on attending but would like to make a donation in addition to buying your ticket, please do so here.
