Harrogate Theater Choir remained active during the lockdown, continuing to record songs together and keep their fans and supporters entertained on social media. The choir even increased its membership during this period, a sign of its growing reputation.
The choir’s debut CD “BINGE” will be on sale at most events and he donates £ 5.00 to MIND for every CD sold.
Chris Parkin, Chairman of the Harrogate Theater Choir, said:
Over £ 950 has been raised since we launched the CD in October 2020.
This has been the most fantastic achievement as we haven’t been able to put on concerts since the launch.
So we hope to raise a lot more money for MIND over the next 12 months which will go some way to supporting the wonderful work they are doing in the Harrogate area.
