Five Newham schools’ campaign to sing for homeless

Five schools in Newham will sing together in two concerts to highlight the plight of the homeless and underprivileged.

Cleves Primary School, in East Ham, is teaming up with Grange, Curwen, Portway and Lister Primary Schools, all in Plaistow, for a one-off performance at Stratford Circus to help the most vulnerable in the borough.

On Sunday, the Theatre Square venue will be opening its doors for Many Voices, the pupils’ choir, who have been working with singing coaches Vocal Breakthrough and musicians Echo.

Guests are asked to bring a tin of soup as part of a group donation to a local soup kitchen, with Sainsbury’s supermarket also contributing soup to the cause and providing a raffle prize.

The schools are inviting everyone in Newham to drop off tins at any of the five participating schools to be handed over to the soup kitchen after another performance at Cleves Primary School, in Arragon Road, on June 16.

Vocal Breakthrough presents Many Voices will be performing at 3pm on Sunday May 20 at Stratford Circus, Theatre Square, Stratford, E15 1BX.
