Choir hits right notes to earn char­ity cash

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

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.
