SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE
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.
