An evening of entertainment at Birtley gig

There will be a fun-filled evening of music, food and more at an upcoming concert in support of aid agency CAFOD’s Connect2 campaign.

Connect2 Ethiopia

CAFOD’s Connect2 scheme includes Ethiopia

 
The gig will be held at St Joseph’s Parish Centre in Birtley on Saturday June 10 from 7pm until 11pm.
 
Music will be played by band 2econd Wind, who will performs songs from the 1960s until the present day.

 
CAFOD representative in Hexham and Newcastle, Jeremy Cain, said: “2econd Wind are a brilliant local band and there will be plenty of genres for people of all ages to sing along to.
 
“There will also be bingo and a raffle with lots of exciting prizes to be won!
“Proceeds are of course going to a really good cause and we would love as many people to attend the event as possible.”
 
CAFOD volunteer Bridgid Duffy will also speak at the event about her experiences as a volunteer in Ethiopia.
 
Bridgid visited Ethiopia as part of CAFOD’S Connect2 scheme which links communities in England & Wales with people in the African country, as well as Brazil, El Salvador, Cambodia and Peru.
 
Connect2 is built on CAFOD’s values of solidarity and partnership, where parishes in the UK are able to stand alongside communities overseas to fight against poverty and injustice.
 
Tickets for the event cost £3 and can be bought by contacting the CAFOD Hexham and Newcastle team by calling 0191 3844847 or emailing hexhamandnewcastle@cafod.org.uk.
 
Anyone attending is asked to bring their own food and there is also a licensed bar at the venue.
