MEMBERS OF the Crescendo Choir in Torrevieja recently handed over a cheque for 100 euros to the Torrevieja Hospital Fellowship, an organisation, which provides cakes, sweets, drinks and other snacks to outpatients receiving all day chemotherapy treatment at the City hospital.
Mary Mitchell, Choir President was delighted to hand over the cheque to fellow choir member, Jean McNary, who is also a member of the hospital fellowship, which is totally reliant on donations.
Many of the choir members have received treatment at the centre and felt the donation was a way of saying thank you.
Earlier in the month, the international choir, made up of members from many different countries including UK, Finland, Denmark, Germany and Netherlands performed their regular twice yearly concert to residents of the Casa Verde in Almoradi.
As usual the show went down a storm and the choir were asked to perform two renditions of the audience’s favourite Amapola, which means poppy in Spanish.
They will be performing a free concert in the Benijofar Church this coming Sunday April 21 at 7.00pm, where donations towards the Church’s restoration will be gratefully received.
New choir members, particularly men, are always welcome. For further information visit their website www.crescendochoir.com or visit their weekly rehearsal at El Paraiso, Urb. Jardin Del Mar 3, close to Carrefour in Torrevieja every Friday from 9.30am to 12.00pm.
