Tony's 'Purr-fect' Evening!

Sunday 22nd February

Tony Whittaker's recent Charity Music Concert at Bulkington Village Hall, Warwickshire, raised over £500 for the Cat Action Trust (1977).

Delighted organiser Sybil Brown said: “I enjoyed Tony's wide selection of music especially the Glen Miller, Abba, South Pacific and the Classical medley. The highlight of the evening was Tony’s humorous finale - a 'Cat Medley' which involved audience participation. This really was a purr-fect end to the evening.”
