Following their successful concert in June as part of the Lisvane Festival, the Llysfaen Singers were pleased to make donations to two local charities.
In the first of these, the Choir has made a donation of £500 to the Velindre Cancer Centre in Whitchurch, in order to help further its aims in providing personalized and effective cancer care. As the premier Cancer Centre in Wales, Velindre is well known for providing high quality radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments, care and support to cancer patients.
Velindre Fundraising supporter, Melissa Haggert was on hand to receive the cheque for £500 from Llysfaen Singers Choir member, Jan Jones.
The second donation of £250 was made to the “Forget-me-not Chorus”, a Cardiff-based charity that supports people with dementia and their families through weekly singing and creative workshops. The charity was formed in 2012 by founders Kate Woolveridge and Sarah Teagle, who had both been working with the group since 2010 under the umbrella of Welsh National Opera and Cardiff & Vale Alzheimer’s Society.
Choir member, Chris DeSouza presented the second cheque of £250 to the “Forget-me-not Chorus” co-founder, Kate Woolveridge.
Happy Birthday to our President Alan, on his 90th Brithday.
Christmas concert 2014.
As Lisvane's community choir, we are proud to support
the Lisvane Old School Development Fund. In July 2014 the choir donated £1000
to the redevelopment fund. In acknowledging the donation, David
Jones, Chair of Trustees, wrote saying “It is a result of the responses to the
Village Plan Questionnaire initiated by Lisvane Community Council that the
Choir was set up and it is with great pleasure that we see how it has
flourished in the short time since it began.
The Festival concert was a great success and the Choir has become a
source of pleasure to many Lisvane residents.”
Happy First Birthday choir!
The Chairman and Musical Director prepare to cut the cake!
