Last Wednesday, the choir performed at the Friends of Tredegar House Gala Evening, at St Joseph's School in Newport. Performing alongside the choir, helping raise money for this worthwhile cause, were the 'poet of Pontypool', Lorna Pearson and the Alcan Singers, as well as vocalists Christine Purkiss and Christopher Edmunds.
Friday night saw choir members, parents and grandparents packing bags in Sainsburys, Newport. The choir also entertained shoppers with some of their favourite repertoire. Both customers and staff appreciated seeing and hearing the children, and a fantastic £674.40 was raised towards our Cincinnati fund. Thanks to all those who came along to help, and thanks to Sainsburys for allowing us to collect.
The Cardiff half marathon is fast approaching and the three intrepid dads, Nick, Neil and Mo are training hard. If you would like to spur them on by sponsoring them, please visit our "Donate!" page, where you can make a donation through PayPal (no PayPal account necessary).
We are also working hard preparing for our trip to Paris in 3 weeks' time, and have welcomed 4 new members to the choir since the start of term.
