Charity Concert - 3rd March Hello me and Jon (jonny89) are organising a charity concert for a girl who we met in India. The Girl's name is Ms. Santhalakshmi. She is 23 years old. She is studying M.Phil in Tamil Literature. About 2 months ago she was involved in an accident between two buses. Her parents paid for all the treatment for her injuries (as there is no NHS in India), costing Rs 500 000 (about Â£6000), but sadly she lost her right foot and the lower part of her leg. She now needs a prosthesis, which will cost a further Rs 100 000 (Â£1200). Her parents have used all their life savings and can not afford this final treatment. Without treatment she will be forced to use crutches. Wheel chairs are not practical due to the very uneven roads and pavements. Also buildings and transport are not geared up to disabilities. Therefore she will not be able to complete her studies and so will not be able to obtain employment. Since marriages are arranged, her prospects of marriage are poor, since she is unlikely to meet the approval of prospective parents seeking a wife for their son. She will have no means to support herself financially, especially when her parents are old. Yet with the prosthesis she can complete her studies, obtain a job and have good prospects of finding a husband and a fulfilled life. Anyone who is interested in coming along to play or to watch just let me know. It is being held on the 3rd March at the Church of the Good Shepherd, Pyrford, Surrey. The concert will begin at 7.30pm but you can arrive any time from 7pm. There will be no tickets just whatever donations people are willing to make. So far we have a trumpet ensemble playing, Surrey Brass and also a junior brass group! Even if you cant make it, it will be nice to hear from you to know you are supporting us! Thankyou!!!
