At the end of July the choir held a fund-raising event to boost the choir funds so that we can invest in some new winter uniform, the current red jackets (pictured below) having served us well for quite a number of years.
Events such as this normally involve coffee mornings, jumble sales and the like but Stithians Ladies tend to Think Big so a dinner was held at our very own Stithians Centre.
~ Pure delight … “seconds” of Monica’s Special Trifle! ~
The dinner was planned and prepared by intrepid choir members Molly and Monica together with their trusty band of helpers. The tables looked lovely with flowers by Suzanne, there was a bar and a raffle and entertainment from Anne Parkes which included spontaneous dancing from Lee!
It was a really happy occasion, sharing good food and fellowship with each other, friends and family. It marked the end of a half year which had been filled with friendship, music and laughter and the sharing of those precious gifts with the wider community at our concerts. The Ladies now have their summer break in order to recoup and rejuvenate ahead of a busy Autumn and Christmas season.
The good news is that a total of £485 was made at this lovely fund-raiser and that will go towards boosting the coffers to acquire our new winter uniform – watch this space for a fashion show!
