The Costa Blanca Male Voice Choir’s (CBMVC) very successful Concert at the Cave has once again enabled them to make donations to two charities – Guardian Angels in Denia, dedicated to helping ease the isolation of single-parent families and the Proteccion Civil in Benidoleig.
Presentation of the cheques took place appropriately at the concert at Cueva de las Calaveres in Benidoleig and members of the Proteccion Civil were there to receive a cheque for €500 from CBMVC’s Stage Manager Phillip Day.
‘Their hard work in transporting and setting up over 200 chairs and their excellent traffic and people-management skills on the night helped so much with the success of this concert,’ said Phillip.
Treasurer of Guardian Angels, Ann Lawrenson, received a cheque for €500 from the choir’s Vice-President Vernon Pearce, who said, ‘Guardian Angels does sterling work supporting single parents in this area and most of their members are ex-pats who moved here but found themselves, after break-up of their partnerships, without the financial and emotional support they would expect to receive in the UK.’
The choir are now taking a break for the summer but already have plans for a concert in Albir in October and for their ever-popular Christmas carol concerts in Benitachell and Teulada in December.
The choir will begin weekly rehearsals again in September at Bar Mediterraneo in Teulada from 5:45pm – 8.00pm every Tuesday and welcomes new members.
