"We are delighted and honoured that the Reading Phoenix Choir will be singing to support Refugee Support Group (RSG) at this concert. Refugees and asylum seekers have faced unimaginable horrors and challenges most of us will never understand. Sadly, their difficulties do not end in the UK as they face an increasingly hostile environment. RSG has been supporting such refugees in Berkshire for over 30 years, and we will be so grateful for your support in coming to this concert to hear this wonderful choir, which will help enable us to continue to employ our casework team who provide much-needed and free advice and support. We are dependent on the generosity of the public. Thank you all."
