Bristol Charities Fundraiser Event

Saturday 27th Sep 2014

Dear All,

For its annual autumn singaway, London’s Rowantree Choir is coming to Bristol to put on a fundraiser concert in aid of Bristol Charities. We invite you, as well as your friends and family, to support Bristol Charities and its work by joining us on the evening of Saturday 27th September for what we hope will be a jolly good night out. 

The Rowantree choir ( is some 90 strong and led by Jonathan Rathbone, previously of the Swingles. Entitled ‘Around the World’, the concert will offer a light-hearted repertoire, bringing together songs from different countries and traditions and featuring songs from well-known musicals. The programme will last for about an hour and a half with an interval for beverages.

The day will unite 3 charitable organisations in work – Bristol Charities, Rowantree Choir, and our host for the evening, St Stephen’s Church, located in the very heart of Bristol. 

Please do spread the word as widely as you can. All donations made at the concert will go to Bristol Charities, and any contributions you can make will be greatly appreciated. We hope that as many of you as possible will be there to support us on the night. 

Kind regards,

Anne Anketell
Chief Executive
