Vice-President of Canterbury Rotaract and Director of the show, Becky-Anne Gladwin, said We are really excited about this concert. Its wonderful to have such a variety of talented acts all performing at the same event. Equally I am delighted that everyone involved has been able to voluntarily offer their services to such a worthy cause, so that all the money we raise will go directly to the nominated charities.
