As reported in the Cornish Times, the choir collected over £1170 at the five free concerts held in Polperro over the summer, with over £325 being tossed into our buckets at the last concert of the season on the fish quay. We are extremely grateful to our very generous audiences. Cheques have now been sent to the British Heart Foundation and Reverse Rett. (Cornish Times photo by kind permission of Kim McVeigh.)
CELEBRATION OF VERY LONG SERVICE
4 Jul 2017
At a special concert in Looe Lifeboat House with BBC television present, the choir celebrated the very long service of Ken Puckey and John Pooley who both joined in 1972. In most choirs, service of 45 years would be impressive enough but the choir is one of the oldest in Cornwall. Murray Collings joined in 1952 and has now been in the choir for an incredible 65 years.
