On Friday 10th March, North East acoustic duo Maria & James perform at St Augustine’s Parish Centre in Darlington to raise money for a local branch of the international charity HCPT (Hosanna House and Children’s Pilgrimage Trust. The trust aims to take around 1,000 disabled and disadvantaged children to Lourdes in the south of France for a week of fun with volunteer helpers and operates two trips during the year. 

The duo will be performing their own material, including new material from their upcoming album, alongside a selection of classic cover songs in their ear-pleasing and engaging style. Speaking about the work the charity does, Maria said, “We know a lot of people who are involved with this charity, incredible people who happily volunteer to make sure the children they take are safe and happy… We wanted to contribute to the amazing work that they do.”

 James adds, “I have been involved with these trips before and they really are life-changing. We are so happy to use our music in a way that will hopefully raise more money for them.”

Tickets for the event are £7.50 for adults and £4.00 and are available here.
