Eastbrook children on song
Children entertained shoppers at the Holmbush Centre in Shoreham on Thursday to raise money for Action for Children.
A group of 50 children, aged seven to 11, from Eastbrook Primary School Junior Choir sang a selection of modern and traditional Christmas songs and carols during the fund-raising evening, helping to raise nearly £600 for the charity.
The children, from both the Southwick and Fishersgate sites, accompanied their singing on percussion instruments and wore lovely festive Santa or Christmas hats.
They were led by music teachers Nicky Harris and Sarah Erskine and their families helped to swell the crowds to make a wonderful audience.
John Young, from Action for Children, said: “Apart from the school, we had good support from various music local church groups.”
He added: “I am delighted to report that we collected £589 on the day.”
Action for Children supports and speaks out for the UK’s most vulnerable and neglected children and young people, for as long as it takes to make a difference in their lives.
The fund-raising carol singing at the Holmbush Centre is an annual event supporting the charity.
Nicky Harris, from Eastbrook Primary School, said the children had really enjoyed the singing and the school hoped to be able to support the charity again next year.
