Burns’ Concert in Wantage
£870 was raised at an evening of Scottish music and recitations in Wantage Civic Hall on Sunday 27th January, put on by Pandemonium (the Wantage-based folk band ) and friends.
The band was joined on the evening by guests June Craig and Jeff Stevenson who gave recitations and anecdotes on a Scottish Theme in celebration of Robert Burns.
Said Pandemonium member, Howard Hill, one of the prime organisers and whose idea it was “This has been a thoroughly enjoyable evening and a great team effort and we are pleased to be able to support a cause which benefits our local community. The Wantage & Grove Street Pastors are volunteers who give up their evenings at the weekends as a reassuring presence, giving help out on the streets where needed and helping to make people feel safe. We are grateful to the Wantage Community Church, volunteers from other local churches and the Street Pastors themselves for their support in putting on this concert.”
