Tonight’s performance in Christchurch Library

The Christchurch Library was the venue tonight for a fabulous performance by soloist Olivia Sebis

The audience gathered in the library main reception area fortified against the elements by refreshments of mince pies and hot drinks  provided by the Library to hear a medley of seasonal songs from 15  year old Olivia.

A raffle was held following the performance and proceeds from that would be added to the cheque for £500 presented to Philip Tarrant of the Bournemouth Blind Society, the nominated charity for the evening, by Charlie White from Onepoint Survey who had sponsored the evening.

Our thanks go to Olivia for a wonderful evening’s entertainment and all the staff of the Christchurch Library who were such enthusiastic first time participants in the CLAC programme and we look forward to welcoming everyone to the final evening performance at Druitt Hall tomorrow night before the programme finale on Christmas Eve in Saxon Square at 2pm.
