Local chorus take fundraising to a spiritual level

28th September 2012


Fundraising isn’t an easy task, so when Kent’s number one chorus group, Viva Acappella, had their brainstorming sessions recently one of their members had an unconventional idea to host a mediumship evening. 


Dedicated member Claire Mussett has been spiritedly organising an evening with medium Christina Green to help in their campaign to fly forty women to Hawaii in 2013 to represent the UK and the Netherlands in the Sweet Adelines International Barbershop Competition. Claire had recommendations from family who have experienced the captivating spiritual medium in action before, and thought it would appeal to a completely different audience.

Christina Green is one of Britain’s most exciting spiritual mediums, whose readings and appearances have earned glowing reviews from her audiences and clients. She works on platforms in churches and centres across the UK with the remarkable ability to communicate between those who have passed over, and their loved ones left behind. In 2010 she released her book ‘They’re Only a Breath Away’, telling her own true story with her early encounters with the spirit world and personal experiences of tragedy and loss.


‘An Evening of Mediumship with Christina Green’ will be held at Crofton Halls in Orpington on Thursday 8th November 2012. Doors open at 7.00pm and the event starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8.50 per person in advance (£10 on the door). Refreshments and various stalls will be available throughout the evening, plus there will be an interval performance by Viva Acappella themselves.

To book call 07429 075973/ email enquiries@vivaacappella.co.uk.

All proceeds go to the Viva Acappella Hawaii Fund.
