Village Voices Donate to the Friendship Project for Children
The choir has not been able to hold any concerts in 2020 or raise funds from these for charity. However, individual members have donated the magnificent sum of £400, which we provided to The Friendship Project for Children in October. This brings the choir’s total donation to the Friendship Project to £1,750.
Rehearsals have been suspended at Chase Meadow Community Centre for the foreseeable future. However, the choir is holding virtual online rehearsal sessions each week.
‘Normal Service’ will be resumed based on government advice and guidelines.
Updates and full details of the choir’s events will be displayed on this webpage, as they become available.
