100 MILE CYCLE RIDE

100 MILE CYCLE RIDE

15 Sep 2021

Three of the choir's fittest singers have cycled 100 miles from Marazion to Polperro, via some of Cornwall's loveliest places, to raise money for the 'Save Polperro Chapel' appeal. Polperro Chapel has been the home of the choir for nearly 100 years and the cyclists arrived back there on Wednesday - just in time to sing with the Wreckers! Donations in support can be made at the link below or given to any member of the choir.

HERMIE HELPS THE CHAPEL!

HERMIE HELPS THE CHAPEL!

All the choir members are doing their best to help save Polperro Chapel so we're delighted to announce that Phil Carrigan, our favourite author (and musical director!), has written another delightful book about his faithful companion Hermie (in the photo with Phil), this time doing his four-legged best to help the Chapel. This lovely, inexpensive book really will help as all the profits will go to the Chapel appeal. It's available from the Chapel, the Choir, the Museum and the Post Office or please order direct from Phil at phil.carrigan@btinternet.com.

The front cover of Hermie's book is here

PLEASE HELP SAVE POLPERRO CHAPEL

PLEASE HELP SAVE POLPERRO CHAPEL

From 26 Jul 2021 to 25 Apr 2022

The lovely Polperro Methodist Chapel, which has been our home since 1923, is at serious risk of closure without urgent funds to carry out major repairs to the roof and fabric. The chapel links right back to the visits of John Wesley to Polperro: the present building is on the site of the first chapel built in about 1790. Sadly, the pandemic has so restricted fund-raising that the future of the chapel is now at risk. The chapel and the choir are doing all we can to raise funds but you can help too. Even the smallest donation will help, as will sharing this appeal. Thank you.
