Lancing concert raises funds for charity

SCHOOLS from Sompting and Lancing came together for a charity concert, thanks in part to the efforts of a nine-year-old boy.

Held at Lancing Tabernacle, in North Road, on Wednesday, March 28, the charity performance featured children from Sompting Village, North Lancing and The Globe primary schools, as well as the Sir Robert Woodard Academy. The idea for the concert came from nine-year-old Luke Cambridge,who,having seen African children on TV dying because of the lack of clean water, wanted to do something to help.

Last year, Luke and his friends held two concerts in his own home, but this time the concert was held at a bigger venue.

Lancing Tabernacle compèred the evening and the Rev Richard Brunton spoke about the work of Living Hope Ministries, which is working in Africa and other countries.

Money raised from the evening will go to the Living Hope Ministries, with the funds being passed on to children in Kenya.

The Sir Robert Woodard Academy junior band will also receive some money.
