On Friday 22nd December, from 12 noon, Manchester, England based Vinejuice Radio will be streaming 24 hours of carol singing, challenges, and holiday fun all for a great cause. Through engagement at the station, online and via social media, the station aims to raise £2,500 for Cherished Hearts, a charity that offers personal and practical support, ongoing friendship and mentoring to vulnerable women and children. The funds will help the charity secure a property to provide shelter for these families.
“Having experienced domestic violence myself, it means a lot to me to be able to support Cherished Hearts and help them to keep doing the great work that they do for the people that need it the most.” - Lavinia Goddard, co-founder of Vinejuice
Among the gospel, CCM and Christian hip-hop artists from the US and England, gospel star Jonathan McReynolds will join Friday’s fun! Other confirmed artists and personalities for the Carol-A-Thon are: Lurine Cato, The Big Sing, Latice Crawford, TBN UK, Faith Child and many more!
Cherished Hearts founder Helen Spicer had this to say about the collaborative effort: “We really love these women. We don’t just do this as a job we genuinely love them. Our vision is to be able to buy a house where we can give these women a safe place to be with their children and offer them a greater level of support. We’re so excited about what Vinejuice Radio are doing for the women we support.”
“I’m so excited for the Carol-A-Thon. It’s going to be an amazing way to spread some Christmas cheer and round off 2017 by giving back - which is what Christmas is all about. We’re really pleased that so many people are taking the time out to make this an epic online event. We’re hoping to have thousands of people tune in throughout the 24 hours, raise awareness around domestic violence, and encourage people to give.” -Adaeze Chiwoko, co-founder of Vinejuice
