Hi. I'm Pat Mumford, Chair of the Brewood Singers. I joined the choir in 1987 and have made many friends and happy memories over the years.

We have had lots of wonderful concerts mainly in the Midlands but sometimes further afield.

Away from the Singers I love spending time with my family, travelling and playing (lots!!) of golf.

The Choir... Formed over 45 years ago, Brewood Singers is a SATB choir of around 30 people who enjoy singing and performing. We sing SATB arrangements of songs from film, theatre, pop and also light traditional choir music and perform in a variety of venues including Churches, Garden Centres, Village Halls, etc.

 Our support for charities through singing...
One of the objectives of the Society is to make donations to other charitable bodies when we can afford it. The Singers are a non-profit making society and if finances allow we make donations to local good causes and charities. The focus is usually local, or sometimes it can be a cause which chimes with members of the singers for personal reasons.

In recent times, monies donated to local good causes have been raised through raffles held at our two main concerts in the Summer and at Christmas.

In recent years, the committee has decided to support local charities including, Brewood and District First Responders and Brewood Dementia support group.

We usually raise between £300-£400 for the chosen cause. Here you can see members of the committee presenting cheques to these causes.
