A CAROL concert to mark the 10th anniversary year of a popular charity is being held in St Albans Abbey next Tuesday, December 1.
Herts-based charity, the Willow Foundation, provides special days for seriously-ill 16 to 40 year olds and was founded by former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson and his wife Megs in memory of their daughter who died of cancer aged 31.
At the concert, which starts at 7.30pm, The Hertfordshire Chorus - recent stars of BBC 2's The Choir - will lead the congregation in song. There will be a solo performance from Lucy Kane, the daughter of Willow Foundation celebrity patrons Linda Lusardi and Sam Kane who will be at the concert, as will Bob and Megs Wilson.
The Willow Foundation has gone from providing just 17 special days in Herts in its first year to almost 1,400 across the UK in 2009. To date the Foundation has provided more than 5,300 special days for young adults living with life-threatening conditions including motor neurone disease, cancer and muscular dystrophy.
