| Our support for charities
|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.
