THESE youngsters are tuning up for a big event.
The children from Crow Lane Primary School, Milnsbridge, will be featuring in this weekend’s annual Longwood Sing.
Starting at 2.30 on Sunday it will be the 136th successive Sing, held on the hill above St Mark’s Church. And this year, the singers will be raising in cash in memory for former Examiner journalist Adrian Sudbury, who last year lost his battle with leukaemia.
Youngsters from Classes 4 and 5 have been getting ready for their performance at the event at Nab End Tower.
They were led by form teachers Mrs Helen Newsome and Mr Sean Nicholson.
Head Teacher Mrs Wendy Wallace said: “Everyone is excited having been asked to play a part in this most long running of all Longwood traditions, especially as this year it aims to raise lots of money for the Sudders Leukaemia Appeal.”
Sing chairman Charles Ross said: “We want the good weather to stay here so that there is a good turnout on the hill and at the tea afterwards, which will help with our ambition to raise £1,000 for the Anthony Nolan Trust.
“If we can achieve this amount it will both enable the project to be funded for two months, plus add weight to the call to roll it out in Adrian’s adopted home”.
The appeal aims to get teenagers to put their details on the register of potential donors.
