A CONCERT will raise money for an in demand foodbank and to help provide shelter for the homeless.

This Saturday Churches Together in Evesham and District will be holding their Advent Celebration at All Saints Church, Evesham at 3pm.

The event is to raise money for the Caring Hands in the Vale Lighthouse Appeal. Demand for the Caring Hands Foodbank, baby bank and family bank have seen a dramatic increase in demand this year and the Lighthouse Appeal aims to help them secure a permanent base which can also be used as a "drop in" centre as well as providing an overnight cold weather shelter for rough sleepers.

The afternoon will see a variety of Christmas music played by the Evesham Concert Band with the Engage Youth Choir from Evesham Baptist Church.

There will be plenty of opportunity for the audience to join in the singing of carols as well as traditional Christmas songs.

Tickets will be available on the door, priced just £3.00 each and there will be an opportunity to find out more about the appeal.
