On the last Saturday evening in June, at St Petroc’s Church Bodmin, students from Bodmin College put on a charity concert to a hugely appreciative audience. The atmosphere was electric. The lighting looked spectacular. The performers were fabulous. We were treated to: energetic dancing; melodic singing; amazing piano playing; skilled guitar playing both acoustic and electric; flute & clarinet duo, poetry and play recitals.

£1000 was raised for Help Jaydon Walk, from the concert, cake sales at Bodmin College and donations from the church congregation, tourists and local people. One member of the audience, Pete Moore, commented, “What a wonderful evening! It’s marvellous to see young people prepared to give up their time and effort to benefit someone else.”

A huge thank you to Bodmin College for allowing the students to perform, the students themselves, the cake bakers, the helpers at the concert, the audience and the generous givers (photograph by Peter Hicks).
