An unusual combination of Bedford Town Band Concert Brass and Zimbabwe Community Singers will be joining forces to make music at Priory Methodist Church this weekend.

The event on Saturday is being held at the church in Newnham Avenue, Bedford, to raise funds to relieve hunger and poverty in Zimbabwe and to provide support to victims of brutality and deprivation in the troubled African country.

Members of the church’s congregation have been working hard during the past year to raise money to help the Zimbabwe Victims’ Support Fund.

Organiser the Rev David Winwood said this week: “The concert will be filled with a variety of bright brass music, contemporary and traditional, from the Bedford Town Band Concert Brass and vibrant and joyful singing from the Zimbabwean Community Singers.

“The Zimbabwe Victims’ Support Fund is run by Christian volunteers and we know first-hand every penny raised will be used to help and support those in need.

“More than 80 per cent of Zimbabwean people, black and white, have no jobs and no income so it is a very worthwhile cause.

“It will be an evening of exceptional entertainment.”

The event starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £5 and can be reserved by calling 01234 353523.
