We were delighted that on Thursday 15th February we were able to present a cheque of £572.31 to Winston’s Wish, our charity of the year for 2017.
Sophie Birch, Regional Fundraising & Events Officer, from the charity, was able to visit the chorus and she listened to our rehearsal. After the presentation Sophie was able to tell us what our donation would be able to help them with, and as the national helpline costs £500 per day it will be put to great use as nearly 5000 called the helpline last year. It is manned by trained clinical practitioners and is free and confidential.
Sophie also added “I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all members of Fascinating Rhythm for this wonderful donation. We really appreciate you choosing to support our charity, this kind demonstration of support makes a big difference to the families we are supporting. With your help we can ensure that grief doesn’t destroy a child’s future”
