£1,500 Christmas gift for Alzheimer’s Research UK
A huge thank you to everybody who came to Pershore Abbey on Saturday 2nd December for ourA Cappella Christmas Cracker concert...
It was a full house and a fabulous atmosphere as we all enjoyed the best of the spectacular Great Western Chorus and the ‘small but beautifully formed’ Vale Harmony
Zoe Baggott, Regional Fundraising Officer at Alzheimer’s Research UK said:
“We were delighted that Vale Harmony chose this special event to raise vital funds for dementia research. I was so impressed by the performances of both Vale Harmony and Great Western, and really enjoyed the varied and entertaining programme that had been put together.
“We are extremely grateful to everyone who helped with the planning and organising, and to all who came along on the night. The money raised will be invaluable in helping us try to bring about a life-changing dementia treatment by 2025.
Mike Gearey, from Droitwich , who’s our Chorus Director added:
“Vale Harmony was privileged to sing in Pershore Abbey once again with our friends from the Great Western Chorus of Bristol, the current UK Barbershop Champions. We are pleased and delighted by the support and generosity of the public at our concert which has allowed us in turn to support ARUK as our chosen charity for this year.”
We’ve had this feedback (below) from one members of the audience…thanks so much, Gill for your lovely words.
“The concert in Pershore Abbey was really spectacular. The Abbey itself is a fantastic place to hold a concert before Christmas.
I was absolutely overwhelmed with Vale Harmony and their fantastic chorus. You could see the dedication they had all put in, and it was a real thrill to see them performing. They filled the Abbey with delight.
As they say, it’s not the quantity, but the quality and Vale Harmony certainly achieved that. Especially when they all dressed in their gold and black. They all look stunning!!!
Great Western also gave a magnificent performance. But I really felt that when Vale Harmony joined with them, it was Great Western supporting Vale Harmony in a wonderful Venue.
Well done Guys. Thanks for starting the magic of Christmas.”
Paul Branston from Great Western told us:
We are all very pleased it went so well. We all enjoyed the event and if it has raised good money to help fight this dreadful disease then so much the better.Hope we can do it all again some time in the future.
