A former Royal High School Bath student, Becca Hardcastle, is putting on a Christmas concert to raise money for Action for M.E. and the ME Association.
The concert is virtual and will be taking place via ‘Zoom’ on Saturday 17th December at 3:00pm. Becca will be joined by another Royal High Alumna, Izzy Pinder and many other friends, who will also be performing. Tickets are £3 from Eventbrite and all of the money raised from ticket sales will be donated to the two charities.
Becca who is 21 years old has had Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) since she was 15 and is passionate about supporting these two charities. She came up with the idea of the concert as a great way to get into the Christmas spirit without having to leave the house but the timing is also fitting as this time of year is extremely tough for many people with M.E. Many people with disabilities, chronic illnesses or energy limiting conditions are more likely than most to feel the negative repercussions of the cold.
Becca said: “I know from experience that living with M.E. especially when you’re young can have a massive impact on your life. It can be extremely hard doing simple everyday things that most people take for granted like going to school or even spending time with your family and friends.
“I’ve always loved singing and I used to perform in concerts at school before I got M.E. and I love fundraising, so I thought this would be the perfect way to combine the two. I would love to see you there in support of two incredible charities which are close to my heart and hope it will be an afternoon filled with Christmas spirit, fun and some good music!”
The concert will be on Zoom on Saturday 17 December at 3pm.
Tickets are £3 and all proceeds will be split between Action for M.E. and the M.E. Association. You can buy tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sing-for-me-at-christmas-tickets-391276146487
