Ugandan children's choir to visit Morpeth
A children's choir from Uganda will visit Morpeth to perform a series of concerts in the area.
The Pearl of Africa Children's Choir will be staying with members and friends of Morpeth Methodist Church during their trip.
The choir is hoping use the visit to help and support The Molly and Paul Child Care Foundation, a Christian organisation established in 1983 aimed at building homes and schools for orphaned and destitute children in the Kampala and Masaka districts of Uganda.
There are now eight schools with around 2,600 pupils and children from these schools sing and dance in The Pearl of Africa Children's Choir.
The group's visit to the UK will raise awareness, as it desperately requires funds to help sustain and improve the standard of education, health care and living standards in Ugandan schools.
While in Morpeth, the group will be running workshops in local schools and performing concerts at various venues to raise funds for the charity.
