At practice on 25th October Caldicot Male Voice Choir was pleased to present a cheque for £2375 to Wendy McManus the Community Fund Raiser for Wales Air Ambulance Service. With Gift Aid this amount will increase further.
Wendy is quoted as saying ‘A huge thank you to everyone in Caldicot Male Voice Choir for its fabulous fund raising in challenging times. We really do appreciate your support to keep our helicopters flying.’
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the choir’s charity events organiser, Tony Griffiths said that it has been difficult to organise events but nevertheless through golf days, cycling and running events and even virtual challenges, this amount has been raised.
Apart from concerts, the Choir’s charity events have raised about £50,000 for local and national charities over the past 10 years.
Next year the Choir will be raising funds for ‘Ready Steady Go’ a local charity based in Undy which supports the needs of autistic children in the area.
