A choir group is singing for joy after receiving a £500 grant from Beverley Town Council.
The grant to the Beverley Male Voice Choir has come from the town council’s Small Grant Fund.
It will be used to purchase new music for the choir, some of which will be used for their ever popular Prelude to Christmas concert ,on Sunday 15 December, in Toll Gavel Church, Beverley.
The Mayor of Beverley, councillor Martin Cox, said: “We are very pleased to be able to support the Beverley Male Voice Choir through our grants committee because the choir do such sterling work in raising money for local charities and for the local community.”
The choirs next fundraising concert will be on Friday 6 September, at St Catherine’s Church, Leconfield, starting at 7.30pm.
Tickets for this concert are £6 each and all proceeds will be in aid of the Church Fabric Fund.
The choir was founded in 1955 from members of the Choir of St.Nicholas’s Church, Beverley.
It currently performs at least 12 to 15 charity concerts a year and is available for bookings.
If you would like to book the choir, call the group’s secretary Malcolm Mathias on 01482 842259.
