Rwanda Youth Choir
On Sunday, St Luke's Church in Formby played host to the Rwanda Children's and Youth Choir, while they visited the UK.  The choir nearly missed the event after the British Embassy in Rwanda would not issue visas for them to travel to the UK.  This was eventually sorted out and the Choir came.  

Before the night started the organizers headed by Allen Hobson had a hotpot supper with the choir (Top right, sitting with the Shyira Bishop. 

The idea of the Choirs visit to Formby was to thank St. Luke's church for raising funds to re-build their hospital in Shyira and for sending a team earlier on in the year to them.  (see back dated articles for info.)


Choir, made up of Tutsi and Hooto  is designed to build a bond between the two tribes and to stop the greenside from ever happening again.  The UK tour was part of that re-building program, taking them to Ireland, Formby, Birmingham and the New Forest.
The evening was only a one off, but it raised valuable funds for them to put towards re-building the hospital.  

The next day they went to St. Luke's School in Formby, to thank our MP and other Government ministers and to tell the children of St. Luke's School what being from Rwanda is like.

St. Luke's Church is still after donations of Equipment and money, ring Prof. Allan Hobson on 01704 875118 for more information.
