The King’s Men are coming to Warwick later this month to raise money for a county charity that funds holidays for families who care for somebody with learning disabilities.

Edward Button has become a new trustee of the Rufus’ Friends’ Charity which is run by his grandmother, Jane Hedderwick.

He has asked his choral scholar friends from Kings College, Cambridge, to perform in St Mary’s Church on June 27.

The close harmony group are formed from the King’s College Choir, best known for their televised performances of the Nine Lessons and Carols at Christmas.

Edward knows that last year the Rufus charity paid for more some 35 holidays for Warwickshire families referred to them by social services.

He says the group have agreed to entertain following a drinks reception starting at the church at 8.30pm.

And their repertoire promises something for everyone ranging from sacred music and jazz to Byrd, The Beatles and even One Direction.

Tickets cost £15 from the church gift shop, or by ringing 613543 or visiting
