On Saturday 30 January 2016, Za’s long-standing supporters, Long Ashton Orchestra performed another wonderful concert at Portishead Methodist Church with pieces from Beethoven, Bruch and Brahms. A particular highlight was the concerto for violin and orchestra with soloist Paul Packwood, Leader of the orchestra. A huge thank you from Za to all the members of the orchestra and especially Nicholas Bromilow, their conductor.
The concert was free but there was a retiring collection and a cake sale during the interval. Enough money was raised to fund ten orphan and vulnerable children in one of our After School Clubs for a whole year. We are very grateful to our Za youth team for their support and expertise at cake selling. Here’s Max with Mum Lisa, at one of our cake stalls:
