During the pandemic restrictions Caldicot Male Voice Choir has been unable to help charities fund raise through its concerts. However, it also raises money through its Golf Society, the Birdie Boys and its Cycle Club, Cor Meibion Caldicot Cycle Club which between them have contributed over £48000 for national and local charities in the past 9 years.
Events have included cycle rides, half marathons, golf days, walks and virtual events.
The Birdie Boys last event was on the 18th September at Llanwern Golf club to raise funds for the Welsh Air Ambulance, the Choir’s nominated charity for 2020/2021. 30 choristers and supporters took part and with sponsorship and a raffle raised £379 on the day, making the total for the charity though a range of events to £2375.A magnificent effort considering the restrictions imposed by lockdowns.
Many thanks to all who have taken part in the events and particularly baritone chorister Anthony Griffiths for organising most of the events.
The attached photos were taken on the day by chorister Leon Jones which explains why he’s not in any.
