Music will raise money for foodbank


A YOUNG musician is to stage a concert of jazz, calypso and world music to raise money for the Warrington Foodbank.
It will be the fourth year running that former Lymm High School student Meera Maharaj has used music to help the foodbank – and she has already raised more than £4,000 as well as receiving donations of groceries, from her first three concert.
This year, flautist Meera will be joined by guitarist James Girling to present a relaxing flute/guitar duo concert
The concert will be on July 13 at 7.30pm at St Wilfrid’s Church, Grappenhall.
Meera, who lives in Grappenhall, has just completed her undergraduate degree at the Royal Northern College of Music. The Meraki Duo, a flute/guitar duo formed at the RNCM in 2013, have enjoyed performing across the UK and they enjoy playing an eclectic mixture of music.
Meera said “When I staged the first concert four years ago, in my first year of college, I saw the enormous impact that the donations made. The fact that foodbanks were necessary then was shocking, however, it is inexcusable that four years later the demand has increased rather than lessened.”
She added “It is always a privilege to play in my village for such a wonderful audience. The generosity of the people of Warrington has been demonstrated in abundance through the previous three concerts and I hope even more can be raised this year.”
