Choir hits right notes to earn charity cash
A FUNDRAISING choir has given a boost to a charity which helps young people and their families.
Laurence Singers, based in South Manchester, handed over £500 to Cre8, which works on the Moss estate.
It brings to £1,400, the total handed over to local and national charities by the singing group in the last year from ticket sales.
The money will help boost the charity’s work supporting young people and their families living on the Moss, which has been running for 10 years.
Rev Rob Wardle from Cre8 said: “At Cre8, our work is all about empowering young people and adults to make good things happen both for themselves and their neighbourhood.
“We believe that everybody has something to contribute to the community, whatever their ability.
“We are very grateful to the Laurence Singers for their support.”
In the past 12 months the Laurence Singers have raised a total of £1,400, through concerts and ticket sales, in aid of local and national charities.
Cliff Crewe, choir director, said: “As part of the local community, we are delighted to have the opportunity to support deserving causes, whilst enjoying our singing.”
Laurence Singers treasurer, Valerie Jones, hands over a cheque for £500 to the Rev Rob Wardle from the Macclesfield-based charity, Cre8.
