An Advent Concert for the Czech Television

7. 12. 2014 - 5:00 PM

Prague Loreto, Loreto Square 102/8, Prague 1

The Charles University Choir has committed itself to take part in the 2nd Advent Concert to be broadcasted by the Czech Television from the Prague Loreto on 7 December 2014. The concert will be dedicated to collect donations in favour of the Civic Association helping the disabled in the village of Lipka near Prostějov. For 22 years, the day care centre for children, youth and adults with disabilities has been providing various services to ninety clients, ranging from physiotherapy, speech therapy and therapeutic workshops to social activation services for elderly people. The Association wishes to implement a project to build a home for the disabled. They purchased a house from the municipality which, with the support of the Regional Operational Programme of the EU, they convert into a sheltered home for 14 clients. At the same time, inside the home, they build a workshop to serve for social therapy; it is a patisserie where six clients will find work. They plan to open this facility in 2015 but they need more funding to install the missing compensating and medical devices and to buy additional furniture for the home and for the patisserie. In total, they need CZK 1,000,000.
