SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE

Bray People - - PICTURES -

GROUPS all over the place gave us their songs last week­end for the Caro­line Foun­da­tion’s ‘Give Us a Song’ ini­tia­tive.

There was a singing work­shop in the Lit­tle Bray Com­mu­nity Re­source Cen­tre, while up the road at Tesco, Serendip­ity bar­ber­shop choir en­ter­tained lis­ten­ers, all the while col­lect­ing money for cancer re­search.

The Grey­stones Singers Cir­cle raised their voices in the Hot Spot mu­sic club on Sun­day af­ter­noon, with a great at­ten­dance of singers and lis­ten­ers.

The Ir­ish choir and the folk group from the Holy Rosary both sang at the church. The Ir­ish choir sang in­side the church, then they joined the folk group out­side.

Af­ter singing out­side the church, they moved to Church Road where a flash mob also per­formed.

Beat­ing Time sang for the pub­lic on Fri­day at Tesco in Grey­stones.

The singers raised hun­dreds for the Caro­line Foun­da­tion as part of a na­tion­wide drive through­out the week­end.

World Cancer Day falls on Fe­bru­ary 4 each year. This is also the birth­day of the lat Caro­line Dwyer-Hickey from Grey­stones.

The Caro­line Foun­da­tion was es­tab­lished in 2013 af­ter the 35 year old died fol­low­ing a nine year bat­tle with cancer.
