A Suffolk singer is returning to her home county for a Christmas concert in aid of a children’s charity.

Christina Johnston, who attended Framlingham College but recently moved to London to work with a top music manager, will be performing at Aldeburgh Parish Church on Saturday, December 22.

“I have a lot of concerts in London leading up to Christmas but for me it was really important to include a concert for the people of my home county,” said Christina.

“Suffolk is my home and now I have moved back for good I wanted to do something special for them this Christmas.

“I love performing for my home county as this is where it all started.

“My own mother was in hospital over Christmas, when I was three after our car accident.

“It is important for me to raise money for such an amazing charity especially over Christmas when families need to be together even more as they feel the strain even more.
