PARKLANDS RESIDENTIAL HOME THORNE: 27th Nov 2019
This year we started early with the Christmas concerts. Our first performance was at Parklands Residential Home in Thorne on the 27th of November. It was a small programme that we presented to the audience but it was a good mix of popular Christmas songs that they join in with and of course carols to sing along to.
THORNE MALE VOICE CHOIR CONCERT AT HATFIELDS: 4th Dec 2019
The choirs own concert "MUSIC AND MINCE PIES" took place once again at 'Hatfields' on Ash Hill Road in Hatfield. Once again it was a mixture of audience participation, solo's, poems, jokes from our compare Ian and generally it was a good laugh.
The raffle this year was very good. Thanks to all who contributed. Thanks again to the staff at Hatfields. Another thing that has come from the Hatfield concert is a new choir member. His name is Alan Lowndes and he came along to our first rehearsal in the New Year, and has been back again and seems to be enjoying it so he is IN
CARLTON WI: 10 Dec 2019
Unfortunately I cannot report on this concert because I was not there.
MOORENDS PARTY CHARITY: 12th Dec 2019
The Moorends Charity were holding a Christmas party for people who attend on a regular basis and our choir was asked to sing before they sat down to eat their meal. We presented the same programme as used at Parklands Residential Home. It turned out to be a very enjoyable morning.
HATFIELD WOODHOUSE METHODIST CHURCH: 13th Dec 2019
Hatfield Woodhouse is always a happy event but unfortunately the audience numbers are dwindling slightly. However it was still a fun evening. With Mel dressing up as a penguin and Dave and Gwyn losing their places during the duet. Christine was on fine form with her monologues so all in all it was a good evening.
Thank you to the ladies/gents who provided the refreshments.
RICHMOND RESIDENTIAL HOME : 19th Dec 2019
Our last concert of the Christmas period. The programme was the same as Parklands in Thorne the only difference with this home was the residents had been practicing the carols.
SAINSBURYS SUPERMARKET : 24th Dec 2019
As usual the choir went to Sainsburys supermarket in Thorne and stood in the entrance and sang a selection of Christmas carols to members of the public coming to shop at the store.
As always we had a bucket for donation to a charity of our choice. this year the committee decided to nominate a local charity "Firefly Cancer Awareness and Support" that provide free transport for cancer patients from Doncaster to Sheffield's cancer treatment centres.
The money we made on the day for this charity was over £300
More News: We have another new member who has joined the baritones. Still to get his name.
