Community First Responders
The charity chosen to support for 2018 was Community First Responders (CFR). Our concert in April raised £230 and was the first of two planned concerts for the year which supported these volunteers trained by the Ambulance Service. .
A further £620 was raised for CFR funds at our December concert held at Newlands Girls' School.
CFR volunteers attend emergency calls and provide care until paramedics arrive. It self-funds all its equipment. The choir greatly admire the work these volunteers undertake.There fast response can save many lives while the ambulance crew is on its way.
The total donation of £850 will go towards the purchase of a new life-saving defibrillator. Photographs from the December concert are shown below together with photos of the presentation of cheques from the two concerts.

Thanks to a cheque for £1000 payable to Honeypot Children's Charity left at the Tuesday Singers' rehearsal venue we were able to increase the amount sent to Honeypot Children's Charity to a grand total of £1800 from the two concerts performed during the 2019.
We would like to express our thanks to the person who donated the £1000 cheque which will go towards helping children who are carers in the area. It was such a very kind thing of the person to do - the choir were as delighted as the charity were.
The Honeypot Children’s Charity aims to enhance the lives of children aged 5-12 by offering both respite breaks and outreach support to young carers, many of whom would otherwise have nowhere to turn. Honeypot gives these children a chance to be a child again, enabling them to forge new friendships with children who are in similar circumstances in the nurturing environment of the Honeypot Houses. The Honeypot Children’s Charity can help to provide a foundation from which the children can learn, grow and develop.
