thank you & well done

The heaven2earth concerts are now finished, and Christmas has come and gone
Today (24th Jan 2006) we have presented a cheque for 22,000 to Tearfund's Dave Cooper
The CD and DVD have sold brilliantly - definitely East Suffolk's Christmas Number ONE 2005 !
We also had an excellent run of concerts from the 5th to the 9th December
Over the 5 nights we had almost 1000 children on stage singing and around 3000 people watching
as well as a cast of some 60 people on stage as singers, dancer and in the band
