Children from Reading schools, including New Christ Church Primary School in Katesgrove, the Christ the King Primary School, the John Madejski Academy and Whitley Park Primary School in Whitley will be taking part in the annual Children Helping Children concert at the Hexagon Theatre on 6 February at 7pm.
The money raised from these two hours of song and dance will be donated to charities Barnardo’s and Creating Better Futures. The event began in 2011 to raise funds for a US operation on a pupil from the Christ the King Primary School.
“It was such a success that all the schools wanted to do it again, and we have never been disappointed,” said Christ the King head teacher John Cosgrove. “Every year our young people seem to reach new heights, and over the years we have raised more than £10,000 for a range of different charities, local, national and international. We are particularly excited by the line-up this year, which promises a show that is better than ever.”
