Successful Sing-a-Long

What a way to kick off the Christmas season.

On Friday 2nd December the Madrigal group from Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School helped to lead the annual Peru sing-a-long at St Peter’s Church Hall, Belle Isle. With great Yorkshire classics such as ‘On Ilkley Moore Bar T’at,’ and a mixture of songs such as ‘The Rhythm of Life’ and ‘You Raise Me Up,’ the group sang to help raise money for the Diocesan Mission run by the Sisters of Mercy in Lima, Peru.
The money raised on the night through the entertainment provided and the raffle will help to contribute to the wonderful work that the Sisters do in Peru, and the generous donations were gratefully accepted. As well as the talented group of Songsters, who were directed by Sally Barnes and accompanied by Stuart Thompson, crafts from Peru were also sold on the night to help benefit the health and educational facilities that are required. The girls finished by singing festive Christmas Carols, and an amazing sing-a-long was enjoyed by all.

The Sisters would like to thank all those who have supported their Mission over all these years including Father Eamonn McGoff, the parish priest, who helped organise the eventful evening and the Madrigals who have contributed to the sing-a-long for over 20 years.
