Worcester's Mayor holding fundraising concert for charities

The Mayor of Worcester is holding a concert at the Guildhall as part of his fundraising drive to support four local charities.

Allah Ditta is devoting his year in office to supporting St Richard’s Hospice, Worcester Wheels, Headway Worcestershire and Worcester Cathedral.

The concert, starting at 7.30pm on Wednesday, July 31, will be an evening of Ghazal, folk Geet and Punjabi singing with performers, Sabir Mirza and Aahista Aahista.

Mr Ditta said: “This will be a memorable concert with two of the best Punjabi and Pakistani music performers in the UK.

“They are both making the wonderful gesture of giving their time for free to help raise funds for some of the best-loved causes in Worcester. It’s an evening that’s not to be missed.”

Tickets cost £25 each and include light refreshments. To book, email civicoffice@worcester.gov.uk. Tickets will also be available on the door.

St. Richard’s Hospice (www.strichards.org.uk) cares for adults with a serious progressive illness, improving their quality of life from diagnosis, during treatment and to their last days.
