23 AUGUST 2018

Dear All,

It has been suggested that choir members might like to know what is in store for them the following week.   From now on I’ll try and publish a provisional list of songs when putting the newsletter together.  Next week it will probably be: Sunshine, Fire and Rain; Te Aroha; O Signore; Wake Up; Call of Wisdom; Isa Lei; That Lonesome Road; Evo Banke. 

In connection with Isa Lei, you might like to look at this recording of the song made by Katie (alto)’s daughter in Fiji earlier this year:    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yt7FhMJVgBs&feature=youtu.be

25 June 2018 Performed by the students of Naceva District School on Kadavu island.

Finally, and most importantly, next week will be BADGE WEDNESDAY.  Please come wearing a decorative name badge and get to know some new people.


Many choir members sponsored Heidi’s head shaving in memory of her father a while back.  She writes: “I do not have any sponsored events myself this year, but my mum is being very brave and has booked in to do a Sponsored Tandem Skydive in aid of Cancer Research UK.  Hopefully it will be this Saturday, 25th August. ”   If you would like to support Heidi and her mum you should be able either click or maybe control/click on this link:  https://www.justgiving.com/Ann-Epps?utm_source=Sharethis&utm_medium=fundraisingpage&utm_content=Ann-Epps&utm_campaign=pfp-email&utm_term=NEpBj3VRK.

JustGiving sends your donation straight to Cancer Research UK and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more. Thank you for your support!
