Concert in Lavenham to raise funds for Team Refuge

Have your say

A concert at Lavenham Parish Church next Friday will aid the work of a charity which helps save the lives of refugee children.

Jake Morland from Lavenham, works for the United Nations and was inspired to found the charity Team Refuge which enables the emergency evacuation of injured children from war torn areas.

Jake and friend James Turner took part in the race to the North Pole to raise awareness and funds to create Team Refuge.

On Friday April 12 concert by The Casadesus - Enhco Trio will raise funds for the work of the charity. The trio made up of Caroline Casadesus, soprano, and her sons Thomas and David Enhco on piano, violin and trumpet, will pay its distinctive blend of classical and jazz featuring music from Handel and Bizet to Miles Davis.

Tickets for the concert which starts at 7.30pm are £12 and available from Lavenham Newsagents and Sparling & Faiers Bakery in the village.

During its first year of operation Team Refuge covered the cost of 30 medical evacuations of children and vulnerable people at an average cost of £400 each. This year they are hoping to double that and help save 70 children.
