A Hemel Hempstead-based charity which supports street children across the globe is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a summer concert.

Since its inception in 1994, Hope For Children has provided on the ground help to young ones and families torn apart by everything from devastating natural disasters to bitter civil wars in nine countries across Asia, Africa and Europe.

The organisation will mark the end of its second decade of good deeds at St John’s Church in Boxmoor, with performances from the Kings Langley Community Choir and mixed-voice harmony group Just A Capella.

The choir, which boasts a membership of more than 50 people from the Dacorum village, will display their repertoire of everthing from pop to doo wop, while seasoned competition winners Just A Capella are celebrating their own anniversary this year with a decade together.

The event takes place on Monday, June 2 from 7.30pm. Tickets, at £10 each, include cheese, wine and other refreshments during the interval. Call 01442 234561 to book.

The cash raised will be used to support the charity which was set up by Warners End resident Dr Bob Parsons. From its roots of a £5,000 bequest from a friend, Hope For Children has grown to raise an incredible £1.6 million and directly help more than 70,000 children in the last year.
