HAMPSHIRE Police Choir and Irish dancing will help a charity concert go off with the bang.

The event at Park Community School, in Leigh Park is expected to raise hundreds of pounds for Help for Heroes.

Musician Peter Lindsay, from Leigh Park, has been organising the shows for the last six years in aid of Help for Heroes.

The 68-year-old former soldier said: ‘We’re very fortunate to have secured the choir as well as the Boyle O’Dowda Academy of Irish Dance and the brilliant young composer Lewis MacKenzie.

‘The concerts began with a small event a few years ago but have grown out of all proportion.’

Richard Roly and Matt Wort will be providing piano solos, the Chichester Youth Recorder Ensemble will perform as well as and Kendra and Annette Kitteridge on guitar and clarinet.

The show is on October 6 at the school in Middle Park Way. Tickets cost £7 by calling Mr Lindsay on (023) 9247 0839 or you can buy them on the door for £7.50.
