Four Central Coast choirs will come together to benefit The Pencil Tree in an uplifting concert where they sing their most loved songs.
The Pencil Tree is a small charity with a big heart. It is based in northern NSW and gives 100% of donations to buy stationary for rural children in Nepal and India. Poor school children of rural Nepal and India often find school difficult as they do not have access to paper, pencils and books to write in. This means school is very hard and stops them from getting the education that will help them lead their families to a better life for generations to come.
The Pencil Tree is a volunteer group entirely focused on providing a good educational beginning for these children with the supply of basic educational stationary. The charity also collects old mobile phones. Especially useful are superseded smartphones, the ones which can connect to the internet, for re-use or to sell the components to fund the stationary. There are no administration fees or salaries taken from funds raised.
The participating choirs are The Gosford Musical Society directed by Thayer Donaldson, Katandra Voices and the Central Coast Children’s Choir from the Central Coast Conservatorium directed by Joanne McMahon and the Jubila Singers directed by Jane Becktel.
2:30pm Saturday December 2nd at Avoca Beach Picture Theatre.
Tickets are $12.50 or with the donation of an old phone, $10 each.
Tickets can be purchased by calling the Theatre on 43 821 777 or online through their website http://www.avocabeachpicturetheatre.com.au/
