£1600 RAISED FOR CHILDREN'S CANCER CHARITY

There was a capacity audience at our free concert with Porthcawl Male Choir in the lovely (and very large) All Saints Church in Porthcawl, west of Cardiff, on Saturday 5th October.  With the help of a raffle and very generous donations, an amazing £1600 was raised for LATCH, the Welsh children's charity supporting youngsters (and their families) undergoing treatment for cancer. This included all the money from the sale of our CDs at the concert, donated to the charity by the choir.  


Polperro Fishermen's Choir

Polperro Fishermen's Choir have since their formation in 1923 provided the very best in traditional Cornish and modern choral music. The choir has appeared on radio and television, attracts audiences from many countries wherever they perform and has forged friendships with choirs from England, Wales and elsewhere in the world. The choir’s aims and objectives are as strong as ever and a great many charities have benefited from their devotion and love of singing. We have the active support of our President, the celebrity broadcaster and writer Richard Madeley, in raising money for good causes. Many members of the choir are also in the Polperro Wreckers, who sing in the lovely Old Millhouse Inn in Polperro at about 9.30pm on most Wednesday evenings. See the Wreckers page for details.

'At home' on the fish quay at Polperro

On selected Wednesday evenings in the summer each year the choir can be seen ‘at home’ on the fish quay in Polperro, entertaining locals and tourists alike. Describing the concerts as one of Cornwall's ten best 'free secrets' in her book Cornwall for Free, author Rachael Rowe says the singing "is a delight to hear as the sun goes down over the sea".  In 2019, our 96th year, our very generous audiences have donated over £1500 at the concerts.  The money collected has been divided between the Cornwall Air Ambulance New Helicopter Appeal and the Stroke Association (in memory of our great friend and singer, Ray Bowden), as well as the choir's own charity.

The choir and the Wreckers also perform in Looe and elsewhere, often to raise funds for the RNLI. Our famous Christmas Concert in Polperro Methodist Chapel on 23rd December attracts an audience from many parts of the country and overseas. Details of approaching choir concerts are on the News and Events page.
