The British Legion and Help For Heroes both benefitted from the Armistice Day tribute concert stage by ROOTS Community Singers. Approximately £140 was shared between the two organisations which exist to help injured and ex-service men resume normal civilian lives.
The concert consisted of songs, music, stories and poems performed by the choir and individuals set against a visual show of World War 1 & 2 photographs.

Staged at the Royal British Legion, Melbourne, the performance was enthusiastically received with many of the audience admitting to be quite moved by the experience.
Roots were joined by special guests John and Sheila Bentham from Soar Valley storytellers who performed a unique set detailing the exploits of Songster, the Loughborough war horse.
