Students to organise school choir concert ‘Rock For Hope’

News Page 11th March 2019

Events Management students at the University of Northampton are organising a primary school choir competition to raise money for Northamptonshire charity, the Hope Centre.

Rock for Hope will take place on Friday 22 March, 6–9pm at the Spinney Theatre, Northampton School for Girls.

The event will see six local primary schools battle it out on the big stage – putting a spotlight on the county’s next big music sensations.

The participating schools include: Duston Eldean, Simon De Senlis, Cogenhoe, Good Shepherd, Kingsthorpe Village and Headlands.

The event is in support of the Hope Centre’s work with disadvantaged people experiencing the most acute problems of exclusion and marginalisation.

Tanya Haji-Miller, community fundraiser for the Hope Centre,  said: “We were really excited at the prospect of working, once again, with the university’s Events Management students to give them a chance to put into practice what they have learnt over the past few years. Rock for Hope will give young people the perfect opportunity to show off the talent in our community and raise lots of money for the homeless, disadvantaged and poor in our town.”

Throughout the night there will be prizes available to be won in the raffle, including food and cinema vouchers, Northampton Town FC matchday tickets and much more, with all proceeds going to The Hope Centre.

Tickets can be purchased here – priced £6.50 for adults and £4.50 for children.

The event can be followed on Instagram and Facebook: @rockforhope19 and Twitter: @rockforhope1. For any additional event queries, email:
