This concert event involved 7 primary schools from Chesham taking part with over 200 children from Chesham alone; in total 500 primary school children participated in the project and events. The project has run for many years, but this was the first year a venue was hired due to the size of the project, leading to higher costs.
Other avenues will be explored for funding in the future for this annual project. As a good and well-rehearsed event, it is being used as a model for others; the Princes Risborough School is setting up a similar project. There are plans to get one set up in South Bucks, High Wycombe and Aylesbury. This is a real legacy to what has been started here in Chesham and Amersham and something that will benefit many children in years to come.
Project Date: 2016
