Southland musicians supporting Southland causes
Southland's musical talent will be helping save lives next month.
The Southland Women's Club are hosting a variety concert to help raise funds for Southland St John.
Women's club president Shirley Clarke said the concert was about celebrating the region.
All the talent was from Southland and all the money raised would go back into helping a Southland-based organisation.
Founded in 1921, the club has been doing what it can to serve the community for almost 100 years, she said.
They had been running an annual charity concert for as long as she could remember.
"Each year we support a different local charity."
As president, this year it was Clarke's responsibility to choose the charity.
"I couldn't think of a more worthy cause. Everyone relies on St John, or knows someone who has relied on them at some point or another."
Nine performers were set to participate in the variety concert including vocal solos from Kayla Wilcox, Emma Jones, Cindy Mulrooney, a recorder solo from Helena Barton and a reading by Kathleen Sutton.
The Southland Women's Club Variety Concert will be held at their club rooms on Esk St from noon on June 9. Tickets are $10 and are available at the door.
