Battle of Proms concert as popular as ever

Maisie Jeynes 26th Aug, 2017

MORE than 7,000 revellers descended on Ragley Hall for the annual Battle Proms concert.

The summer celebration of orchestral music, air shows and firework displays proved as popular as ever, and guests raised more than £10,000 for charity Combat Stress.

The British Army and Parachute Regiment’s official display team carried out a freefall demonstration in the sky above the concerts, and the Red Devils dropped in too.

Combat Stress is the UK’s leading mental health charity for veterans, providing free specialist clinical treatment and support to former servicemen and women across the UK.

Faye Waters, volunteer and community fundraising officer at Combat Stress, said:“We’re so grateful to everyone who made a donation to Combat Stress and contributed to the total amount raised.

“It’s vital that we raise awareness and funds for the charity to ensure we can continue to support every veteran that comes to us for help.”
