The Thurstonland Community Choir have had a great start to their 2015 – 2016 year. Their Autumn concert of Film and TV music raised the princely sum of £450 fo the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, presented to Ann Littlewood shown below
The Christmas Village Concert and the wonderful evening’s carol singing, supported by Kirklees Music School Brass, raised an excellent £365 for CLIC Sargent.
Bring a lantern and join the walk around the village accompanied by a brass band from Kirklees Music School.
Finishing at the Rose & Crown with prizes for the best decorated lanterns.
As a finale to our wonderful Tour de France weekend, here’s a poster from Marie Curie to thank us for the all the donations dropped into the collecting tins around the village.
You should also know that on top of the amount in the collecting tins, the Saturday events and Sunday Concert allowed the TVA and Choir to donate a further £500 to Marie Curie, bringing our
Village donations to a whopping £663.34
Thanks to all who contributed to make this a fantastic event!
What a weekend for the Village
