Daughters of Charity in music marathon
Comment Email Print
¬†The Daughters of Charity held a Music Marathon last weekend, to raise money for their community project in Kenya. Gathered in the basement of the sisters' house in Carlisle Place, London, they played for twelve hours non-stop. "We had a marvellous time," said Sr Maria Robb, one of the organisers. "There was a core group of twelve sisters on keyboards, accordion, guitar, fiddle and percussion. At times there were up to 24 people playing and singing. Lots of people came to support us but they soon got roped in as well." "In the middle of the event, one sister played the piano on her own for an hour to give people a chance to stretch their legs and eat" she added. "To keep ourselves amused we also did some T'ai Chi and rhythm games to music" she said. To date the event has raised more than £2,000. If you would like to contribute, please send donations to the Daughters of Charity, Provincial House, The Ridgeway, Mill Hill, London NW7 1EH
