Singers for charity

Junior Reid, Lady G and Leroy Sibbles

A NUMBER of Jamaican artistes are to donate their musical talents to the ‘Solidarity 2001’ charity concert project on Wednesday, May 23 beginning 8:00 p.m. at the Waterford Comprehensive High School, Portmore, St. Catherine.

The concert, being organised by 3D Projects and Black Music Promotions Limited, is aimed at raising funds for the construction of a multi-purpose centre for the disabled.

Among those who have pledged their talents are Junior Reid, Anthony B, Lady G, Chuck Fender, George Nooks, Ce’cile, Joshua, Lisa Danger, Louis Culture, Jimmy Riley, Leroy Sibbles. They will be backed by the Rhythm Kings Band.

According to chief executive officer of Black Music Promotions, Randolph Fisher, proceeds from ticket sales will be lodged in an account at the Victoria Mutual Building Society, which has been established for the project.

A number of attractions will be available for children at the fun day, including bounce-a-bout, ferris wheel, merry go-round and donkey rides. In the afternoon Super T and Rebel Discos will play, before the concert begins.

The ‘Solidarity 2001’ charity concert is to be second staging of the fundraising event.

According to Mr. Fisher, he was approached by Hyacinth Henry of the Portmore Parent Group (PPG), a branch of the St. Catherine Parent Association for Persons with Disabilities (SPAD), to assist and out of that the 3D’s project was created. Miss Henry told Showtime that the centre to be constructed was intended to house and provide rehabilitative facilities for over 80 mentally and physically challenged children and adults.

Miss Henry is the mother of Denholm Martin Henry, born in December 1989 with cerebral palsy.
