Brixham Choir Raises Funds for Sail Training
A Brixham-based choir group has raised money for the Trinity Sailing Foundation.
Members of Quay Harmony — who perform in concerts across the bay — raised £500 by hosting raffles at their shows across 2018.
Chair of the choir committee Janet Pettit said: “We perform a variety of songs in support of local charities with the help of a band of loyal supporters. One of our members suggested Trinity, who we thought we be a great cause as they help disadvantaged young people.”
Trinity Sailing’s Marketing & Sales Manager, Harry Gottschalk, was presented with the cheque at a recent rehearsal evening at the United Reformed Church, in New Road, Brixham.
He said: “We are incredibly grateful for the support from Quay Harmony, we have attended two of their performances and we were delighted to show them around Provident and tell them about the sail training work we do for young people across the country.”
For the choir this has been a year of cooperation with male voices. Their guests were Torbay Police and Community Choir in St Andrew’s church, in Paignton, then the City of Chester Male Voice Choir and Missin’ Tackle at Brixham Theatre. All rounded off when they supported Brixham Orpheus Male Voice Choir at All Saint’s church, in Brixham, during October. They held their annual Christmas concerts at Lupton House where they will be appearing again this year. They have also supported Music and Magic events in support of the Rowcroft Charity in slightly unusual locations — a touring holiday park, on a steam train and in a walled garden.
Their first appearance this year will be on Tuesday, February 19 at the Music and Magic event, on Dartmouth Steam Railway, in support of Rowcroft Hospice.
