The Lodge in Castlewellan will be awash with talent this Sunday as the South Down Youth Mission Group host a variety concert to raise vital funds for ongoing projects in Zambia, Central Africa. The group, which has involved young people traveling to Zambia to do humanitarian work over the past seven years, has secured a great local lineup for Sunday’s event with acts including Granite, Gene Fitzpatrick, Phillips Sisters, Kilcoo ‘Hole in the wall gang’, St Malachy’s High School Choir as well as up and coming Newcastle boy band White Shadow.

Speaking ahead of the concert, Group Leader Frances McNally spoke to Newry Times. “The people of South Down have enabled such fantastic work to be carried out by young people in our area to help some of the poorest communities in Zambia and we are again appealing for their support by coming along to Sunday’s concert. We have an eclectic mix of local talent taking to the stage in the brilliant Lodge venue in Castlewellan and it promises to be a super night out.”

Frances added, “I cannot express enough our appreciation to all those who are performing at the concert and to those who have supported us since the group was established seven years ago. We look forward to seeing some old and new faces on Sunday at our event to raise funds to cover vital education and building projects in the Copperbelt area of Zambia.”

The concert will start at 7:45pm on Sunday 29th April. Tickets are £5 and will be available at the door.
