Music for Christmas
We were at Manchester Christmas Markets on Sunday 11th December, between 4 – 6pm, to raise money for Christies Hospital and the Autistic Society Greater Manchester Area. Setting up by the War Memorial we gathered quite a crowd, particularly in the early part of the set – in total we raised £250 for our charities!
When: Sunday 11th December, 4 – 6pm
Where: St Anne’s Square, Manchester, next to the War Memorial.
What: Lovely carol singing, in aid of Christies Hospital and the Autistic Society.
Full of the Christmas Spirit we were ready for our concert at Chorley Methodist Church on 17th December, 19.30pm. As part of their Christmas Tree Festival we performed a range of traditional carols and modern songs, with some solos and audience participation!! The church makes a spectacular setting with all their trees lit and magical atmosphere for enjoying the real Christmas spirit.
