Hope and Homes for Children Fundraiser




The Buskuleles of Usk are thrilled to be taking part in the sell out charity event, on Friday 4th November, to raise funds for Hope and Homes for Children.

The support group in Wales has just 5 members but with determination and the support of the actress, screenwriter, author and producer Ruth Jones they are putting on a fantastic evening of entertainment and food. Whatever the event raises will be doubled by the UK Government as part of its UK Aid Match scheme.

We started our second set with this John Denver classic ...
