-The annual Christmas Charity Concert at St Mellitus, Tollington Park, N4 3AG is taking place this year at 7:45pm on Sunday December 9th. The London Medical Orchestra will be performing pieces from Rossini, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Humperdinck and the wonderful Faure. There will be carols from the Tottenham Community Choir and mulled wine/mince pies. Tickets can be purchased through the LMO website www.lmo.org.uk or on the door on the night or from the parish office. St Mellitus is 10 minutes walk from Finsbury Park tube/rail station and there is wheelchair access.
-This year we are raising funds for a very deserving charity-the Mbarara Epilepsy Project based in Uganda but supported by clinicians from the East London NHS Foundation Trust and others. Epilepsy is particularly prevalent in Uganda, a result of injuries sustained during birth and cerebral malaria, and yet often children with this condition do not receive medical help. The Mbarara Epilepsy Project in South West Uganda provides community education about the illness and supports the development and training of local practitioners. Additional funds will extend the project to other areas, and it is hoped that the Ugandan government will extend the approach generally.
