Tis’ the season for the Surrey Life Shooting Star Chase carol concert, where the festive event on Thursday 17 December at St George’s College Chapel in Addlestone will be made merry and bright with a special performance from Britain’s Got Talent’s Connie Talbot.
The 14-year-old singer, who reached the final of the first series of Britain’s Got Talent in 2007 and has since released four albums, will give a special performance of Adele’s Make You Feel My Love, Sam Smith’s Writing’s On The Wall and the Christmas classic Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas at the carol concert.
In their 10th anniversary year, the 140-strong Elmbridge Choir and supported mums and dads from the Shooting Star Chase Family Choir – who regularly sing together for music therapy – will be joining Connie to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year from 7pm.
The concert, which is in conjunction with Surrey Life and sponsored by Aston Mead, will feature everyone’s favourite sing-along carols, readings from a supported dad and a wine and canape reception. A raffle will also be held with prizes such as a wine experience at Denbies, a £100 Jigsaw voucher and a year’s subscription to Surrey Life on offer.
The event will raise funds to make Christmas extra special for children cared for by Shooting Star Chase – enabling the charity to offer short breaks at the hospices so families can spend precious time together over the festive period and hold Christmas parties for supported children and siblings.
Katy Jones, Community Fundraising Manager at Shooting Star Chase, said:
“The Surrey Life Shooting Star Chase carol concert, now in its 9th year, is always a wonderful evening that’s bound to get even the biggest Scrooge in the mood for Christmas. We are really pleased to be welcoming Connie Talbot and two choirs to the event, and look forward to sharing in the festivities with all our supporters.
“Many of our families don’t know how many Christmases they have left together, so the festive season can be a difficult time. All the funds raised at the carol concert will help Shooting Star Chase create special memories to treasure forever for the mums, dads, children and siblings we care for.”
