Follow The Stars - A Celebration of Christmas Fundraising for MacMillan Cancer Support


It's only a few days now until the Premiere of Follow the Stars in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and the committee is so looking forward to it.   We very much hope you will tune in and enjoy it too; the link will be on the JustGiving page, there will be a countdown and the programme will start at 8pm.  


The concert is available to view until 31st December so please feel free to enjoy with friends and family over the festive period.  If you signed up you will also get a reminder on Friday, but thought I would email you the list too just incase.


Let’s hope next year we will all be looking forward to meeting for A Celebration of Christmas in Christ Church Cathedral.
