Charity concert success

The sixth annual concert organised by the band Quintessence to raise funds for the Lagos Bombeiros took place on Friday, February 13 at the Lagos Cultural Centre.

The band, led by Chris Atcherley, played to a full house, presenting a performance of jazz and Latin American songs and instrumentals.

In addition there was a backdrop of films appropriate to the tunes being played, which has now become a regular feature of the concerts.

A raffle with more than 20 prizes was held during the interval, with a cheque for 2,760 euros being presented to the fire brigade at the end of the evening. This brings the total raised by all six concerts to 15,198 euros.

No expenses were charged by the cultural centre for hosting the concert, allowing all the money raised to go directly to the fire brigade.
