This page is dedicated to the past, and shows photographs of members past and present, representatives of various charities and the odd interloper! There are many more but space is limited.


The annual charity concerts that have taken place over recent years are listed below. We are very proud to have raised £42345 from our annual charity concerts to date, in addition to the funds we have helped generate for many churches, local charities and good causes over the years.

 

The Annual Charity idea was introduced by our then Musical Director, Alan Pooler, in 1993 to raise funds for Children in Need and grew from there to help more local causes. You can see a gallery of photographs from 40 years ago to the present day below the concert list.
