CHISWICK SCOUT GROUP APPEAL BOLSTERED BY CONCERT
Chiswick Scout Group 2002 Development Appeal
concert organised by the 3rd Chiswick Scout
Group raised £2,000 for their Development
Appeal. Over 200 people were treated to an
evening of fun and musical brilliance by Seven
Guys and a Doll at St Michael & All Angels,
Bedford Park last Thursday. The Scout Group
is looking to raise £65,000 to upgrade
its scout centre, a building which is in constant
use not only by the Scout Group but also by
the Tara House School, Residents Association
and other amenity groups.
concert was put together by local residents
Paul Lindsell, a former choral scholar of St
John's College, Cambridge and Alexandra Cornforth
who were joined by five other professional
performers including Sandy Burnett, the well-known
conductor and Radio 3 presenter and Bob Bryan
of internationally renowned vocal group Cantabile.
This upbeat miscellany included numbers ranging
from Fats Waller to Robbie Williams.
Wolton the Appeal co-ordinator was delighted
by the evening, "Everyone, audience, performers
and organisers have had a memorable evening."
Scout Leader, Shaun Joynson concurred, "In
24 years of scouting, I have never attended
such a well organised and enjoyable fund raising
Wolton continued: "St Michael & All
Angels is rapidly becoming one of the great
cultural centres of West London and we are
very grateful to Father Kevin Morris and the
Parochial Church Council for allowing us to
use this splendid Norman Shaw church. We are
also pleased that in Christian Aid week, a
quarter of the evening's proceeds will go to
this important international charity, as well
as benefiting the scout group. The scouts are
one of the key local organisations for pulling
the local community together and tonight, working
with St Michael's has been an embodiment of
this. We have now raised £10,000 out
of the £65,000 target which is needed
to expand and upgrade our scout centre in Wilson
Walk. There is still a long way to go but with
this level of local support we are confident
we will hit our target."
