Carols by Candlelight Concert set for Saturday

Every Christmas since 1955, Rotary Club of Harare has hosted a Carols by Candlelight evening in Harare that has remained popular and has reflected the generosity of the people of Harare.


Rotary Club of Harare is reviving the tradition, by staging this year’s annual Carols by Candlelight next Saturday at the Borrowdale Racecourse.

In keeping with the stipulated Covid-19 protocols, Rotary Club of Harare will host this as an open-air-drive-in type concert with the audience in their cars parked in the open space.

“As such we are appealing for assistance in cash or kind to host this event that will mark the heralding of the festive season in Harare, while bringing the Christmas cheer to those less fortunate in our community,” said the Rotary Club in a statement.

“If the Covid-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it is our sense of community, and that if one member of our community suffers, we all suffer.

“A number of corporates have extended their assistance with Mashonaland Turf Club, Total Fuel Company and ZiFM Stereo committed to and participating at the event, for which we are grateful.

“Your generosity will make a difference to children in need by bringing to them the Christmas cheer and comfort that the majority of the community takes for granted.

“In addition to the gratifying sense of community you will experience, your organisation will receive special mention at the concert, which we plan to be streamed and or broadcast ‘live’ for those who cannot join us physically, to share in this joy of Christmas and giving to a worthy cause.”
