Messiah Performance in aid of One Family 23 & 24 November
@ 8pm, St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin 8. Tickets €28
One Family, Ireland’s leading organisation for one-parent families, is delighted to announce that it has been chosen as the benefiting charity for this year’s performances of Handel’s Messiah by the Culwick Choral Society. With performances on 23 and 24 November at Dublin’s St Patrick’s Cathedral, all proceeds will go towards the askonefamily helpline for one-parent families.
Karen Kiernan, Director of One Family says, ‘Parenting is tough work, I know. But doing it all alone can be even harder. That’s where our askonefamily helpline comes in. We offer support to all members of one-parent families in need of help and information – or simply a listening ear. We have had a 20% increase in calls since the recession and are very thankful to Culwick for giving us this opportunity to raise funds.’ Read more
