Singing for Syrians!

I am delighted to hear that there will be a Singing for Syrians event on Friday 8th December in the constituency - Community Carols at Acomb Pant at 6pm. Singing for Syrians is a fantastic initiative designed to raise money by holding singing events across the UK. The initiative is part of the Hands Up Foundation which supports organisations working in and around Syria, often implemented by Syrians and monitored by the UK. So far Singing for Syrians has raised over £180,000 to help establish a nursery in Idlib, fund a prosthetic limb clinic on the Turkish border and more.

It's great to see an event like this  take place in the constituency to raise money for aid for some of the people affected by the humanitarian crisis in Syria. I hope that the event is a great success and I would encourage you all to go along and support it, or hold an event of your own.
