Calder Valley Voices raise money for flood victims, before new term starts
Thursday, 23 August 2012
Calder Valley Voices outside St Michael's Church in Mytholmroyd on Saturday 18 August, just before the group's contribution to the two 'Floodlight Revue' concerts. Friends from Manchester joined them that afternoon to swell their ranks.
They have told the HebWeb they wish to thank everyone who sang or contributed in all sorts of ways to make the events so successful. They raised over £2,600 (still rising?) towards the target of £3,000 to assist flood victims in the Calder Valley.
As a community choir, they sing at all kinds of local events and gather in term-time to sing for pleasure in the Methodist Church Hall, Hebden Bridge, opposite the Co-op on Thursday evenings. Their new term begins on 6 September and sessions run from 7.15 to 9.30 pm, with a tea break for chats. MD Carol Donaldson will be welcoming men and women, newcomers and returners, that evening. And for newcomers, it's a free taster session!
Calder Valley Voices are a self-run, non-profit group and don't audition. They believe everyone can sing, no matter what they may have been led to believe. They sing songs from all over the world and from different ages, songs of celebration and peace, songs to get us through hard times.
So, if you would like some Autumn cheer, you couldn't do better for yourself than to come along on Thursday 6 September.
