CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF RAINBOWS BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT GB WITH THE MUSIC OF SIMON AND GARFUNKEL IN CONCERT – A GREAT SUCCESS! - 05/10/2016

115 people gathered in Doncaster last Saturday night for a unique Charity Concert to raise funds and to celebrate 25 years of Rainbows. It was a marvellous evening!

 The concert which featured many of the classics such as ‘The Sound of Silence’, Mrs Robinson, The Boxer and ‘Bridge over Troubled Waters’ was performed by Dan Hayes and Pete Richards of ‘Bookends’ for Rainbows Bereavement Support GB Rainbows supporting children and young people grieving a significant and often devastating loss in their lives.

 

 

Comments from people attending included “Best night ever!”, “A superb evening performed by incredibly talented, gifted and generous guys”, “Musically, these two are even better than the originals!” “A lovely night, fantastic atmosphere and a great celebration”

 Frank McDermott, Chair of Trustees, thanked everyone for their attendance and especially Dan and Pete for their generosity in performing freely, for their tremendous support and commitment and for creating such a great atmosphere. The concert raised £1074.50 towards our charity.

 Dan and Pete told the audience that they will shortly be making a special recording of ‘Bridge over Troubled Waters’ with a string quartet and that profits from the sales of the CD will be given to Rainbows. Needless to say, we greatly appreciate their support and generosity.
