A Fantastic Night at Age UK Sunderland’s Christmas Spectacular

Christmas Spectacular

Once again Age UK Sunderland’s Christmas Spectacular which was held last Friday 14th December at the Salvation Army, Roker was a great success.

We would like to thank world renowned opera singer Graeme Danby and Valerie Reid and the Sunderland Monkwearmouth Salvation Army band for hosting such a great start to the festive season.

They were joined this year by Euphonium Virtuoso Andrew Hedley, vocalist Caitlin Hedley and the Choir of East Herrington Primary Academy. 

Director of Age UK Sunderland, Tracy Collins said, ‘We are extremely grateful to everyone who took time out from their busy lives to take part, which in turn has helped us to raise money to continue to support the older people of Sunderland. 

Each year has seen yet more amazing support from both performers and the audience and this year was no exception. 

Due to everyone’s generosity we were able to raise over £3,000 to help alleviate the devastating effects of loneliness and isolation for older people across the City!”
