A raffle held at Nidus Theatre Arts' end of term showcase raised £61 towards our Cincinnati fund. Thanks to all at NTA for their support, not only with this raffle, but also for all they do to support the choir.
Nidus Children's Choir celebrated its 5th birthday in style last Friday with a party at the RAFA club in Cwmbran.
Brilliantly organised by Alison Rees, we ate, danced and (some of us) sang to our heart's content. A good time was had by all, and it also gave us chance to give our thanks to Heidi, Christian, Madame, Gabi and Nick for all of the hard work they do for the choir.
Not only did we have a great time, the party also raised over £200 for the Cincinnati fund.
Yesterday, Sunday 10 July, Nidus visited Ikea in Cardiff where the children sang between 1pm and 4pm to the delight and surprise of the Sunday shoppers. We also had the added bonus of performances by the Nidus Touch dancers.
Many people commented on how beautifully the children sang, and I'd like to think we helped lower the normal stress levels seen on a Sunday afternoon in Ikea.
A large proportion of the choir's supporters also made the most of the opportunity to sample Ikea's famous meatballs, and marvel at the wonder of unlimited coffee and a cinnamon bun for 50p.
The great news is that we collected £346 from the generous shoppers of Cardiff, which will go towards our Cincinnati fund which is growing steadily.
