GENEROUS Sidmouth residents are being sought to provide accommodation for African children set to visit the town in March.

The Watoto Children’s Choir, from Uganda, will perform at a concert at Sidmouth Parish Church on Wednesday, March 2, from 7.30pm.

The Christian organisation aims to raise cash for children, like those in the choir, who have lost one or both parents to AIDS.

Choir members will need accommodation for one night in Sidmouth, said parish church team rector the Reverend Prebendary David James.

He added: “There are two leaders and nine groups of two or three children accompanied by a young adult. The groups will be of the same sex and it would be a question of providing a bed or air bed for the children and a separate room for the accompanying adult, then breakfast the following morning.”
