Chief Executive Officer of the Silvertones Harold Britton told High Note that the two-phase event was being produced with HIV/AIDS sufferers in mind. He is therefore appealing to those attending to bring a monetary contribution or a non-perishable food item for donation to the HIV/AIDS Food Bank. For the concert at the Coleridge & Parry School, there would be a shuttle service between Speightstown and the Ashton Hall, St. Peter school. (EJ)
