50th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS
MONEY RAISED IN OUR RECENT CHARITY CONCERTS .
During 2017 we have celebrated our 50th anniversary as a choir . So for our April concert we invited all our previous conductors and all who had supported us to come and take part . We managed to find many golden raffle prizes and had fun decorating the Newlands Girls School Hall in as much gold as we could find.
Our charity for 2017 has been the Sequela Foundation. This group meets in Maidenhead to support anyone with any illness that has caused problems within the brain. One of our former members is finding great support from attending the group and she suggested Sequela to us. We presented a cheque for £850 from our two concerts.

Community First Responders
We are delighted to help boost the funds of Community First Responders. Our concert in April was the first of two planned concerts this year, the second being on Sat 1st December, which will again support these volunteers trained by the Ambulance Service.
