Raise Money for a Great Cause

This year, Opera in the Park will be supporting Culford School students voluntary work in Malawi. This is the 10th year that the school has raised funds for important projects in one of the world’s poorest countries. Last year, staff and students provided support for construction projects including the building of a new hall for an orphanage and laying foundations for a library as well as delivering lessons in literacy and numeracy. Proceeds will go toward this worthwhile cause.
