More cake anyone?
Updated: Jan 10, 2020
"Let's have an afternoon tea instead of a Summer concert. The Choir could make cakes and we could make some money for charity". It seemed so simple at the time!
Many people worked VERY HARD to get things ready - afternoon tea for over 100 people doesn't just happen. It really showed the COMMUNITY in our community choir: Chris' crockery, Son's flowers, everyone's cakes, teams making sandwiches, setting tables, putting up bunting, distributing the food, filling the teapots: all with the amazing Ali, Bron and Kirsten organizing and beavering away behind the scenes. The hard work paid off and it was a truly WONDERFUL afternoon.
It was so lovely to see Choir members sitting at the beautifully decorated tables with friends and family.
The Choir sang superbly - so much better now that everyone is brave enough to sing without heads buried in their words. We are starting to really communicate when we sing.
There were many encouraging words from our guests: comments about being touched emotionally, how we put colour and contrast into our singing and the variety of the songs.
We also - thanks to the generosity of our guests - made a few hundred pounds for charity which will be split between our chosen charities "Cancer Research UK", " Versus Arthritis" and PCChoir equipment.
