Bromley Rotary Club raised £2,500 for a senior citizens day centre when they organised a Proms themed concert.

The concert in Langley Park on April 28, raised money for the Bertha James Day Centre which offers facilities and services to help elderly individuals and their families. From social functions to complex care duties, the centre provides everything it can to serve Bromley’s elders.

The concert had a varied programme performed by Bromley Youth Music Trust’s string ensemble, and chamber choir, and the Salvation Army Bromley’s temple band, and solo performances from trumpeter Chris Deacon, pianist Richard Phillips, and baritone Mark Norwood.

The chamber choir and the Bromley Temple Songsters came together to form a Prom’s chorus of 60 voices, conducted by Dorothy Nancekievill, leader of The Salvation Army’s International Staff Songsters.
