After the outstanding success of our 2013 Christmas Concert in Stanford Le Hope, a larger venue was sought for the 2014 Christmas Concert to take place on Sunday 21st December.
The Windmill Hall in Upminster played host as our Lennox Productions group gathered again to entertain the audience with a variety of Christmas songs including I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas, Carol Of The Bells, Little Donkey and Silent Night.
The concert was concluded with a surprise visit from Santa who gave out gifts to the children again this year.
Thank you to Michelle Risley for donating the use of chair covers and Christmas decorations, Michael White for comparing the afternoon, everyone who made cakes to be sold and the fabulous audience for joining in with the Christmas cheer!

Lennox Productions is a group of volunteers who bring their talents together to put on annual musical theatre productions to raise funds and awareness for Lennox Children's Cancer Fund.
Since 2007, they have produced many well known musical hit shows at the 500 seater Queen's Theatre, in Hornchurch including Oliver!, Barnum, Annie, The King & I, Beauty and the Beast and most recently Fiddler on the Roof. Although these shows have been described a 'worthy of the West End', they are all performed by an amateur cast made up of volunteers from the local community. The dedicated production team also volunteer their time to ensure a quality performance every time and boy do they pull it off!
As always these shows are all in the name of charity and although profits from ticket and programme sales all help us to achieve our goals as a charity, the show also provides a major advertising boost for us too.
