To celebrate the L&RFWI centenary Angela will be walking the Leicestershire Round. This 100 mile route takes the walker in a clockwise direction around the scenic route of Leicestershire and parts of Rutland. This is the equivalent of 4 marathons over 10 days... Angela is donating all the funds she raises to EMICS. You can help support Angela's fundraising here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/angela-blackmore1
Rutland musician and newly appointed EMICS ambassador Paul McClure released a single at the end of last year called ‘Baby That’s You’, and also made a video staring his friend James Sutton (Hollyoaks/Emmerdale). Paul and James will donate all profits from the sale of the single to their favourite charities, with EMICS as Paul’s choice. Buying the single will send money directly to the Charity, watching and sharing the video will help to raise awareness of the fantastic work the charities do. You can download it from iTunes, Amazon and all good download sites and watch the video on YouTube or on Paul’s website.

On 1st June there will be a Gala Charity Concert at the Newark Palace Theatre in aid of EMICS and the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance. Ever since the national success of the Military Wives Choir and Gareth Malone, new audiences continue to appreciate different styles of choral music. And now, the Belvoir Wassailers, a male voice choir situated in the Vale of Belvoir, are hosting a concert with a difference in aid of two local life-saving charities – the East Midlands Immediate Care Scheme and the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. Joining the Belvoir Wassailers will be the Cranwell Military Wives Choir made up of the partners of officers based at RAF Cranwell and further afield, the high-energy Newark Rock Choir, and the award-winning De Montfort University Gospel Choir. Tickets cost £15 each and are selling fast so book now to avoid disappointment at www.palacenewarktickets.com Please add the date to your diaries and spread the word so we can all have a great time while raising as much money as possible!
