Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Singers from the Ash­ford Com­mu­nity Choir were joined by a spe­cial vis­i­tor when sev­enyear-old guide dog Chloe joined re­hearsals.

Chloe is owned by Pat Mar­shall, who joined the choir in Septem­ber 2015.

Since los­ing her sight nine years ago, Pat says that her hear­ing has be­come more acute and she has de­vel­oped an abil­ity to lis­ten in­tently.

Now mu­si­cal di­rec­tor Karen Hill records the songs for Pat, who learns the words and mu­sic dur­ing the week.

Chloe, Pat and the rest of the choir will be per­form­ing a var­ied pro­gramme of songs at Revelation St Mary’s in Ash­ford town cen­tre on Fri­day, July 1.

Start­ing at 7.30pm, there will be guest singers and mu­si­cians with tick­ets on the door cost­ing £10 or £8 for con­ces­sions and £5 for chil­dren. Prof­its will be shared be­tween Guide Dogs for the Blind and na­tional can­cer char­i­ties.
