School children have performed Christmas music or users of a charity which provides practical and emotional support for people affected by cancer.

The annual Music and Mince Pie Morning at The Mulberry Centre was bolstered by Halliford School, who provided musical entertainment for the cancer support charity in Isleworth.

Eighteen school boys, aged 11 to 18, took part in the hour-long concert on Wednesday December 6, which was performed in front of the Mayor of Richmond, Councillor Lisa Blakemore.

Festive songs were performed by the Halliford Wind Band and the Chamber Choir accompanied at the piano by Headmaster, Mr James Davies.

Helen Head, music teacher at Halliford School, said: “We were thrilled to be invited once again to perform at the Mulberry Centre and to continue supporting such a worthwhile charity.

“The students enjoyed being part of this special festive occasion and we hope the centre-users enjoyed the morning as much as we did.”

It is the fifth year pupils from Halliford School, Shepperton, have been invited to perform for the charity, which provides emotional and practical support for anyone affected by cancer.

Emma Cartwright, chief executive at The Mulberry Centre said, “Our Music and Mince Pies event kicks off our Christmas celebrations in real style.

“It is a much-loved event in our calendar and we look forward to welcoming Halliford School back next December – if not before.”
