During the last year or so, I have had the pleasure and privilege of performing, as Pavanotti, in many local churches, helping to raise around £3,000 in the process.
The reception I have received has been overwhelmingly wonderful and I am delighted to say that some people have even been to see me more than once ... an official fan club could be coming soon (in my dreams).
I have been so impressed by the amazing people who work on behalf of the churches behind the scenes, organising countless events for the benefit of the community and performing miracles of delicious culinary creation to be enjoyed during the evening. My thanks go to all.
I have also had the good fortune to have performed at various private functions and at the Spalding Food Festival.
As you can imagine, it gives me great pleasure to entertain appreciative audiences and I look forward to doing so throughout our beautiful, friendly area for many years to come.
I have created a new show, A Pavanotti Christmas, and I am looking forward to performing it wherever I can help with fundraising efforts during the festive period.
Finally, may I close by thanking everyone at the Guardian for your coverage and support.
People often tell me that they’ve heard about my concerts in the Guardian and it’s a great thing to have such an excellent local paper in our area.
Grazie and arrivederci, Spalding.
