Emma at the Guardian reports a fund raiser for the New Horizons day centre for vulnerable young people next Wednesday. The Guardian’s Angels choir will perform excerpts from The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins on Wednesday 21 May 2008 7.30pm St. Mary’s Church, Eversholt Street (near Euston station – map).
The event is in support of the New Horizon Building Appeal. There will be guest appearances including youngsters from the New Horizon Youth Centre and for media aficionados Jon Snow accompanied by Alan Rusbridger on piano.
New Horizon Youth Centre, on Chalton Street works with some very disadvantaged young people, many of whom have poor self esteem, low confidence, a history of rejection, harm and abuse and often profoundly negative experiences of organisations, structures and the helping professions generally.
New Horizon Youth Centre is a day centre working to ensure that every vulnerable young person finds a home and the necessary tools to progress in their lives. It works with young people who are vulnerable, homeless or at risk. New Horizon Youth Centre aims to enable young people to gain skills and knowledge to improve their life chances and to help them move from adolescence into adulthood.
