Harmonaires choir boosts Bishop's Stortford's Poppy Appeal total by £1,000
The Harmonaires choir have hit a high note for the Bishop’s Stortford branch of the Royal British Legion by handing over a cheque for £1,000.
The money was generated by the group’s Music for Remembrance concert in November. Choir director Josie Cowley presented it to Stortford Poppy Appeal organisers Denise Hudson and Kathy Staines, bringing the town’s total to almost £50,000. The concert also raised £412 for the charity War Child.
The choir will be back in action at 11am on Saturday (December 15) at St Joseph’s Church, Windhill, with a family Christmas concert in aid of homelessness charity Shelter.
Spokeswoman Mary Rowlatt said: “Jingle All the Way is an opportunity to enjoy an hour out and take part in a family-friendly, whistle-stop tour of all your favourite carols and Christmas songs. There will be jingle bells to jingle and plenty of fun for the children.”
Tickets cost £5 for adults and £3 for children from 07916 153 898, www.theharmonaireschoir.com or on the door.
