Singers unite to help brave girl

Former members of Mansfield’s world-famous Cantamus choir are taking part in a fundraising concert to help a brave four-year-old Sutton girl.

Elsie Novell has spinal muscular atrophy type two, which means she is unable to stand or walk.

Her mum, Charlotte, is friends with the singers who last year formed Cantus Amici, which includes original Cantamus members.

They have already staged a fundraising concert for Elsie and will be holding another in St Philip’s RC Church, Chesterfield Road South, Mansfield, on Saturday, 11th November, at 7.45pm.

The money raised from Songs For Elsie will go towards equipment and care for the youngster.

Tickets, priced £12, are available by calling Suzy Fell on 07921 813458 or emailing [email protected]

Cantus Amici was formed in January 2016 by Ann Irons, the director of the current two Cantamus choirs.

Cantus Amici will be part of the Cantamus Christmas concert at Southwell Minster on Saturday, 9th December.

Cantamus will also be performing at the Palace Theatre, Mansfield, on Sunday, 17th December, and in a candlelit event at St Mark’s Church in the town on Friday, 22nd December.

Both events start at 7.30pm and tickets are priced £15.
