Music group donates £1,000

Have your say

A MUSICAL organisation in South Yorkshire is donating the proceeds of a series of concerts to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Barnsley Music Service runs a variety of groups who rehearse on a weekly basis.

The ensembles include guitar and folk bands, string orchestras and percussion groups.

The service has already raised £1,000 for Bluebell Wood, and another sell-out gig is happening at The Fairway in Dodworth this Saturday with a performance by soul combo Soul Jam.

Caroline Artschan, fundraiser at Bluebell Wood, said: “It’s fabulous that the Soul Jam evening has sold out. It’s a great way to get the community involved and help us support more local children.”
