A number of well-known musicians are getting together on the first Sunday in December to get you into the Christmas spirit while performing old favourites in a country setting - and all in the aid of a good cause.
The venue for what is billed as a picnic afternoon is Logwood Village, a home for intellectually disabled adults from all over Gauteng. Residents of the home are throwing open their spacious grounds, with idyllic views over the Magaliesburg, for a Christmas concert with a difference.
On the bill are the world-famous Welsh Male Voice Choir, Paul Obermeyer and Rianda. They will be joined by Parktown Girls High, who has had Logwood as one of their charities of choice during the year. And to end the afternoon you will have the opportunity to join in community carol singing with Ruth Coggin and members of Parkview’s St Francis church choir and Logwood’s own choir.
The event will take place from 15h00 on 2 December 2012 at Logwood’s premises situated at Plot 100, Sunset Drive, Nooitgedacht, Muldersdrift. GPS Coordinates:
“Bring your picnic baskets and blankets and join us for a relaxing afternoon in the countryside,”
“It’s going to be loads of fun for the whole family and I’m sure it’s going to put us all in a really festive mood.
“Should you still be hungry or thirsty after munching on the treats you have packed in your picnic basket, we will be selling Ice cream and cold drink and giving out popcorn. Tea and coffee will also be available”.
Says Sprong: “Please help us raise funds for our amazing residents who, despite their disabilities, embrace life to the full.”
