Junior FR Shines at The Big Sing Fundraiser, Raising Over £990 for Christian Aid

On the 5th of December, the vibrant voices of Junior FR resonated through Zion Church in Frampton Cotterell as they took centre stage at The Big Sing. Organised by Alison Bray, the event marked a triumphant return after a hiatus due to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Alison expressed her appreciation for the performance, stating,

“It was lovely to see the girls perform, and thanks so much for your support. As always, Junior FR was amazing, and lots of people have said to me how impressed they were with the girls’ performance, so well done!”.

The evening featured a diverse lineup, including the Frampton Male Voice Choir, The Frampton Shanty Men, and Rhythmix, creating a musical tapestry that delighted the audience.

The event wasn’t just a celebration of music but also a heartfelt effort to contribute to a charitable cause. Christian Aid, an organisation dedicated to addressing global poverty and injustice, benefited greatly from the generosity of the attendees. The night witnessed an impressive £887.30 in direct donations, with an additional £105.33 expected through Gift Aid, bringing the total funds raised to a remarkable £992.63.

Junior Fascinating Rhythm Spreads Christmas Joy in Local Care Homes

This Christmas, Junior Fascinating Rhythm demonstrated the true spirit of the season by dedicating their regular Friday rehearsals to bringing joy to local care home residents. The young performers, with their infectious enthusiasm, took the stage at Cambrian Green Court in Yate and Westgreen House in Kingswood to spread festive cheer.

The heartwarming connection between Junior FR and the care home residents added a special touch to the performances; two of the care home residents were grandparents of 2 Junior FR sisters, and another care home resident was the father of a previous Junior FR helper.

One of the care home staff commented:

“Thankyou so so much for yesterday! I was completely awestruck by you
all….so talented. I’ve never seen the residents so immersed in a
performance. You are welcome back as often as you like”

The repertoire included a delightful mix of Christmas songs and carols, creating a festive atmosphere that resonated with the warmth of the season. The performance not only showcased the talents of the Junior FR girls but also served as a reminder of the power of music to connect generations and foster a sense of community.

In these challenging times, gestures like these highlight the importance of bringing joy and companionship to those who may be feeling isolated. Junior Fascinating Rhythm’s dedication to spreading holiday happiness serves as an inspiring example of how small acts of kindness can make a significant impact in creating a more compassionate and connected community.
