A children’s choir from Africa will bring an inspirational concert to Lowestoft in the New Year.

The Watoto Children’s Choir, which is made up of children who have lost one or both parents to war or AIDS and found a new home and fresh hope at Uganda’s Watoto Church community project, will be performing at East Point Academy in January.

The project supports orphans and widows in the war-torn country by building sustainable communities with essential services such as orphanages, schools, and medical centres.

With a heartwarming show inspired by African rhythms and gospel, the choir has performed across the world. The Watoto Children’s Choir concert is a fundraising event for Watoto. They will perform at East Point Academy in Kirkley Run on Tuesday, January 30 at 7pm, with entry free. Tickets should be booked at www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/watoto-childrens-choir-in-signs-and-wonders-lowestoft-suffolk-tickets-36856912016
