Have your say

Community choirs and special guests came together to perform in a charity concert at Portsmouth Anglican Cathedral.

World of Music Education (WoMEd) Limited’s Christmas concert was held in aid of the EC Roberts Centre – a charity which helps people overcome reasons that lead them into homelessness.

Natalie Earwaker, a tutor at WoMEd, said: ‘I’m really proud of everyone who got involved with the concert. It was a fantastic evening and we produced an array of great sound for such a worthy cause.’

Melanie Goddard, family services manager at The Roberts Centre, said: ‘The money raised from the concert will make a huge difference to the charity, especially to the children this time of the year.’

The choirs involved were Leigh Park Community singers, Cosham Community Choir and Gospel Road Choir in Waterlooville.

Hannah Browning, 17, a member of the Gospel Road Choir, said: ‘I really enjoyed taking part in the concert and it was great to be able to work with other local choirs.’

There were also solo performances from James Moore, who has starred in the West End, and Britain’s Got Talent finalist Isaac Waddington.
