Lurgan woman and vocal coach Pat McAlinden is putting her coaching skills to good use by hosting a cabaret fundraising concert for NSPCC Northern Ireland.

Pat has worked with choirs and singers for over 30 years and felt that a cabaret concert was the perfect opportunity to let her senior students showcase their talent while raising money for the children’s charity.

She said: “I hold a concert every year and make a donation to help local charities. My friend, Patricia Mulholland, is part of the team at NSPCC’s Craigavon Centre, and she has worked tirelessly behind the scenes of every concert to support me and our singers, ensuring that everything runs smoothly and according to plan.

“She looks after the wellbeing of all of our singers and support staff, and so I felt that NSPCC would be the perfect charity to acknowledge Patricia’s tremendous support.”

The cabaret concert will be held on October 26 at the Woodville Arms with all money raised from the raffle going to NSPCC Northern Ireland.

There will be a variety of singers, with programmes and raffle tickets available on the night.

The concert begins at 8pm with doors opening at 7.30pm. Admission is £7 and tickets can be purchased on the evening of the concert.
