Concert to help the appeal fund
9:00am Monday 28th October 2013 in News
VALE folk are continuing to throw their support behind the appeal to save Evesham’s Abbey Bell Tower.
The campaign, which is supported by the Journal, needs to raise £500,000 to pay for essential repairs to the 16th century tower.
This month it has received a boost of £2,000 from Worcestershire county councillors Bob Banks, John Smith and Clive Holt, who have donated the cash from their Local Members’ Divisional Funds.
Coun Smith, one of the three Evesham ward members to donate the money, said: “Me being Evesham born and bred doing anything to support the Bell Tower is great.
“With Clive and Bob being former bank managers in Evesham, they have dealt with businesses in the town during their career so they have had a strong link in the area for a long time as well.”
Meanwhile, an Evesham musician is supporting the appeal by performing a special concert at All Saints Church from 7pm on Friday, November 15.
Hanna Knight, who is part of collaborative music project hanna*h* with Tim Haines, will be doing a one-off performance of their entire first album, Atelophobia, plus a few new songs.
She said: “The event will be a unique chance to hear our album performed in this way and in such a fantastic setting.
“The event is not church-orientated and we consider it to be a very special gig for us which we hope will be well received.”
Tickets for the event are £8 each and include wine and nibbles on the night. They can be purchased from the Almonry Museum, Abbey Appliances, the church office, or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Sue Ablett on 07871 285 606 or Gillian Nicholls on 01386 443957.
The album will also be on sale with some of this money also going to the appeal.
