Charity concert in aid of St Albans and Philippines group

As a part of our local community we love to see worthwhile events going on in the St Albans area.

A fundraising concert is to take place in St Albans 'The Pioneer club' on Febuary the 22nd in aid of the St Albans based charity 'St Albans and Philippines group' (STAPH) who are dedicated to the Philippines relief.

The St Albans and Philippines group was formed in 2013 by members of the St Albans Filipino community affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Sadly, one member lost family to the Typhoon Haiyan. They hope to raise funds to go towards a long-term project aimed to rebuild St Joseph's school in Degami, Leyte after the school was destroyed in the disaster.

'The Pioneer Club' is a charity funded and locally run community centre in St Albans. The building has been home to members of the St Albans youth and wider Community for over 70 years. Starting out in the Dagnell Street Baptist Church Hall it offered help and support to London evacuees in 1941. Now based in Heathlands Drive, they continue to support the St Albans Community aiming to “offer opportunities to youths and the wider community for a further 70 years.” It seems entirely fitting that they are to host this concert supporting those in the St Albans community who were effected by the Disaster.

Visitors can enjoy a collection of contemporary singer songwriters, performers and DJ’s. Including performances from 'Sam Duckworth', from the band 'Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly' also from 'Two Six Ones', 'Rob Lynch' and 'Engine earz'.

The concert will be an over 18’s event, doors will open at 7.30pm and tickets will be £10. To buy a ticket visit:
