On Friday 24th November in the Fisher-More Hall your own Parish band aka Benchmark did a Free Gig to raise money for the Friends of The Holy Land, an organization which helps and supports the Christian population of the Holy Land, an area where the number of Christians is falling and which does need our support. Despite thedreadful weat her, some hardy souls braved the night and listened, enjoyed and then bopped the rest of the night away. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and raised £150.00 for the Friends.
Benchmark are hoping to a gig sometime in the New Year to benefit many of the parish charities.
On Saturday 4th November 2017 just after the monthly Mass for peace and justice in the Holy Land, Andrew Sharples gave an organ recital.
He began with Jeremiah Clarke's Trumper Voluntary, followed by Rawsthorne's Preude on Londonderry Air, the Cholal introduction and toccata from Boellman's Suit Githique, Bach's prelude on 'Dearest Jesu, we are here', Mendelssohn's War March of the Priests, Vierne's Carillon de Westminster, Yon's Toccatina for flutes, concluding with Toccata in F (Symphony5) by Widor.
The retiring collection for Friends of the Holy Land raised £220.
Thank you to all that contributed and to Andrew for his time and talents.
