Bracknell-based choir raises nearly £ 200 for local charities
A Bracknell-based CHAMBER choir raised almost £ 200 for local charities.
Thames Voyces raised the funds through their Christmas Carols concert in St Mark’s, Binfield, and singing Christmas carols for Waitrose shoppers in Bracknell.
“We would like to thank the generous people of Binfield and Bracknell for their donations,” said Peter Anderson, publicity manager for the choir.
One of the charities that will benefit is the Binfield Lighthouse Program, which supports the homeless and vulnerable in the Binfield area.
At the beginning of last year, the association was helping 15 people. The program now supports 115 people, including young families.
It provides weekly home-cooked meals and essential supplies to those in need. This includes around 300 balanced meals and basic toiletries.
Sarah Muller, treasurer of All Saints’ Day with the Saint-Marc churches also thanked those who contributed. She added: “Every donation to Lighthouse makes a difference, no matter how small.”
