A very special performance in Hampshire Constabulary’s first Christmas Concert raised money in aid of The Blue Lamp Trust.
Visitors to Winchester Cathedral last Wednesday night were treated to a very special performance by Helena Blackman, who was a final contender in the BBC’s “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?”.
She supported Hampshire Constabulary’s first Christmas Concert which was raising money in aid of its recently launched charity The Blue Lamp Trust. The Band of Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire Police Male Voice Choir and Hampshire Music Service Massed Children’s Choir filled the air with their dulcet tones singing carols new and old.
Chief Constable of Hampshire Constabulary, Alex Marshall said:
“There are three main things that the Charity does to support the creation of safer communities, the first is through the Bobby Scheme which fits locks to the homes of vulnerable people who have been victims of crime, the second is to create safer roads through the Driver Awareness Training and the third is to give grants to local schemes working towards reducing crime and the risks of crime and fire.”
Chief Officer of Hampshire Fire & Rescue, John Bonney said:
“We’re delighted to be a founding partner of The Blue Lamp Trust. Education is a key factor in preventing fires and we’re looking forward to playing an active part on this front.”
Jacqui Rayment, Chair of Hampshire Police Authority said
“the concert was very uplifting and in aid of a good cause. It’s nice to know that through our support of The Blue Lamp Trust there will be an opportunity to support the community going forwards”.
Proceeds from the concert will go towards supporting the aims of the charity.
