New Year’s Wishes and a Report on ICIN’s Last Event of 2013: “ A Christmas Celebration “
At the beginning of 2014, all of us at ICIN would like to wish you a Happy and Peaceful New Year.
We would also like to thank all our supporters for their generous help last year. They can be assured that their donations were specifically targeted where the need was strongest.
On the 1st of December, we had our bi-annual musical event; an evening of musical celebration and readings followed by a buffet dinner. The event was a huge success on all levels with an impressive number of attendants who enjoyed themselves to the full. A perfect way to start off the blessed season.
As most of you know, this evening was the brainchild of Mr Joe Bahoshy who dedicated a good few months of preparation and hard work to see it to the successful event it was. Joe’s involvement began from the seed of an idea, to choosing the right pieces and reading extracts, training and coordinating between the various performers, ending with conducting the grand finale.
Thanks to Joe’s leadership and determination, and the dedication of all the musicians, the readers and the Pafties and to all of those who, in different ways, gave generously “The Christmas Celebration” managed to raise nearly £14000.
