Charity Events

Music to celebrate outstanding charity services

By John Charlton

It will be a red-letter day on December 15 for local charity, Reducing the Risk of Domestic Abuse, when a Champions Choir from Oxfordshire and across the Thames Valley will sing in a concert at the Dorchester Abbey, to celebrate the work of Reducing the Risk and its partners.

The concert will begin at 7pm and there will be lots of audience participation, carols, secular music, and the Oxfordshire County Clarinet Quintet will be playing lively music, including a Christmas Jazz Suite.

The Charity works to improve the life chances of many Oxfordshire children who come from homes where there is abuse. It also supports Oxfordshire’s most vulnerable adults, keeping them safe and helping them to rebuild their lives. Reducing the Risk’s Independent Domestic Violence service (IDVA) team of four work with victims at high risk and their children. Since it was established in 2008, the IDVA has worked with over 2,200 high risk victims of abuse, and supported over 3,300 children at high risk.

Date: Friday December 15, 2017 at Dorchester Abbey, Dorchester-on-Thames OX10 7HH
Tickets at £12.50 for adults and £5 for children and include interval wine, soft drinks and mince pies. Tickets available from: with all proceeds to Reducing the Risk.
