Money raised at concert

Have your say

THOUSANDS of pounds were raised for charity at a Salvation Army carol concert.

The Salvation Army Southsea Citadel Corps held its annual Carols at The Kings event at the Kings Theatre in Southsea.

It raised £2,100, which will be donated to the Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association.

Performances included community singing, songs from Salvation Army bands, senior and children’s choirs.

More than 1,100 audience members were at the concert.

Supporting The Salvation Army at the theatre was St John’s Lower School Choir and Portsmouth High School Nursery. Ian Urmston, from the Salvation Army, said the audience was enthralled by the children from Noah’s Ark Nursery, who dressed up in Nativity scene costume.
