"We're holding this event to celebrate the progress that is being made and the lives being changed, and give our community an opportunity to enjoy a fantastic evening while supporting their neighbours in need."

The concert will be at Barking Road's St Margaret and All Saints Church from 6.30pm to 7.45pm. After the concert, there will be mince pies and mulled wine at Caritas Anchor House's offices next door.
