TALENTED youngsters performed in Kennington as part of a year of events to mark the end of a 50-year-old charity.

The children’s concert was put on by the village’s wind band on Saturday at St Swithun’s Church to raise money for Kennington Overseas Aid, which this year celebrates its 50th birthday.

Due to an ageing committee and the death of a long-serving member, the group revealed earlier this year the anniversary will also mark an end for the Oxford institution, which has raised half a million pounds for charity.

Each year for decades it has picked a different, and almost always little-known, good cause to support somewhere in the developing world.

The bumper year of events kicked off on April 14 with a special fundraising dinner and talk reflecting on the history of KOA.

Next will be what is expected to be the last Bagley Wood Fun Run on June 10, with the popular annual grand fete taking place in the village on June 16.
