RORY CALLS ON SCHOOLS, CHURCHES AND CHOIRS TO ‘SING FOR SYRIANS’ THIS CHRISTMAS
Rory Stewart MP is joining other MPs nationally in calling upon local schools, churches, and choir groups to host a ‘Singing for Syrians’ event in December.
‘Singing for Syrians’, part of the Hands Up Foundation which raises funds for charities working in war-torn Syria, is an upbeat nationwide campaign to encourage the whole of the UK to sing and raise money for Syrians this December. And Rory would like local people to get on board.
Speaking about the campaign Rory said: ‘It’s not too late to organise an event in time for Christmas. Singing for Syrians is a wonderful opportunity for local signing groups to help some of the most vulnerable people in Syrian society. Time and time again I have seen at first-hand the warm fundraising spirit in our community and I look forward to seeing this campaign take off in Penrith and The Border through the power of song.’
Interested groups are asked to contact Rory to obtain a fundraising pack, which explains how to hold a ‘Singing for Syrians’ event locally, with branding for collection buckets, and other ideas for how to make your event a success. All the money raised from the event will go to doctors and medical teams in the besieged areas of Aleppo.
