Vital charity benefits to tune of £3.5k

A POPULAR choir, a Pirbright church and the good men and women at Woking Hospice are clearly all singing from the same hymn sheet.

Members of St Michael & All Angels Church presented £3,577 to the charity last week after hosting a fundraising concert at their Church Lane home.

The sum was collected after an evening of song from the Cardiff Arms Male Choir at the end of September, which was sponsored by Woking Solicitors Barlow Robbins, and Mr W Davies.

The star soloist was Peter Karrie, who sang both before and after the interval.

“It was a really great atmosphere with a wonderful selection of songs,” said the hospice’s Community Fundraiser, Fabian Hine, who went along and also accepted the cheque on behalf of the charity.

“The committee are doing a wonderful job organising this annual concert and we are very grateful for all their support over the years.”

The concert was also attended by Woking Hospice founder and Trustee Rhod Lofting, and Trustee Sue Jones, who spoke about the care her late husband received at the hospice.

After the concert the choir moved to The Cricketers pub in Pirbright where they entertained dozens more people until midnight.

For the past three years St Michael & All Angels Church have hosted a concert with the Cardiff Arms Park Male Choir to raise funds for Woking Hospice, and they have so far raked in £11,973.

NEXT year’s concert is set to take place in May. For further information visit www.wsbhospices.co.uk/events or contact Woking Hospice’s Fundraising Team on 01483 881752.
