The Choir raised £342 for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice through its Christmas concert and carol singing. The photograph above shows Sammie Robertson from their Development Office who came along to our rehearsal to thank us. We have also received a letter of thanks from the Chief Executive of the Hospice.

Sammie stayed on to sing for the rehearsal and really enjoyed herself, impressed by the friendliness of the choir. We lways give a very warm welcome to new members, so if you feel like a sing on a THursday evening, come along to St Thomas’ Church at 7:30!
