Travel: York Hall bus stop.

What will I be doing?

  • The Kids Network will be holding our first winter fundraiser. The event will be focused on a mentor/mentee choir singing modern music that we will ask them to pick! We are looking for someone experienced with leading a group of children (and their mentors) in practicing choir songs before their big performance.
  • This role will lead three practice sessions at the weekend with the children and mentors involved in the event and then lead them on the night of performance. You will support the children and their confidence in performing, helping them remember lyrics and sing to their best ability. The most important thing is that they are having fun and are able to feel proud of themselves.
  • No organisation of this event is required. TKN staff will get children and mentors where they need to be. Every child will have a supporting mentor and a TKN staff will be on hand at each practice session and be running the main event.
  • Proposed practice dates are: Saturdays 2nd Nov, 16th Nov, 20th Nov between 10am and 12pm. Event evening on 4th December 5:30pm - 8pm.

What impact will this have?

  • We support vulnerable children in London who do not have access to opportunities to things their more well off peers do
  • Through this event they will be able to gain confidence, express themselves and perform to an audience giving them lots of invaluable memories
  • Children and mentors will most importantly have fun and find joy in what can be a challenging time of year for them
