The CBSO and St Basils are delighted to announce that we jointly raised over £5,800 through charity bucket collections at the CBSO's Choral Christmas concerts with Ore Oduba last month. The proceeds will be split equally between the two charities.
Thank you to St Basils - it was wonderful to be able to share this collection with you again - and thank you to all those who donated. These funds will make a real difference to young people's lives in the region.
St Basils is a Birmingham based charity working with 16-25 year olds who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. All across the region St Basils not only provide sheltered accommodation, but support young people through a range services to help them regain the stability they need in order to rebuild their lives and acquire the skills, training and employment experience in order to move on in life successfully.
Meanwhile, the CBSO runs an extensive choral programme which engages over 600 singers every week. Led by Simon Halsey and his team, the CBSO’s choral activity aims to develop and inspire talent, unite communities and promote confidence, happiness and wellbeing.
