A charity concert was held at Gainsborough on 26 March 2011 in aid of the Kenya Trust. Salvationist bandsmen from around the United Kingdom gathered together to play under the direction of Peter Millest.
Music included the classic march Victors Acclaimed, the song arrangement Jesus Loves Me, All Around the World (Emil Söderstrom) and the march Hands Across the Sea, which was specially written for the Trust last year by Ray Steadman-Allen.
Mr. Paul Millest of Edinburgh contributed two piano solos and joined the band in two items.
Reverend Barbara Steadman-Allen of South Holmwood Church gave the Bible address.
Envoy Ken Clark, chairman of the Kenya Trust, was the compère for the evening. Over £500 was raised for the trust, along with 22 donated instruments.
On Sunday morning, Reverend Steadman-Allen led worship and the day concluded with a Bible study on St. Matthew’s gospel.
Peter Millest wishes to thank all of those who helped make this weekend a success.
