With record temperatures for many a year, summer days are passing at speed and the Langport Community Choir summer diary dates are now all done and dusted. First up was a late request to take part in the BBC Radio Somerset programme 'Clueless'. On one of June's chillier Sunday mornings, presenter Andy Bennett soon warmed up the hardy dozen that he 'found' in the main car park in Langport. Andy claimed just before starting off the singing, that singing is something he would never be able to do - the offer of joining us is still open Andy!
It was also a great opportunity to promote our Performance and Social Evening on 9th July 2018 where we sang the Sing for Water West 2018 song set that we have worked on since the beginning of the year. It turned out to be one of the hottest evenings we had ever performed on and we are would like to give our thanks to all who came to support us.
We were delighted to raise in access of £280 for the Sing For Water UK Charity WaterAid, in support of the millions who still live in communities around the world where there is no access to clean water resources near to home.
It seemed rather poignant that the following The South West Water event at the Brunel Passenger Shed on 15th July 2018, was similarly an incredibly hot day. Everyone involved in this event did an amazing job and in excess of £31,000 was raised by the end of the weekend.
How fabulous it is that through singing we can improve our health, learn new skills, increase confidence, make great friends and help those who are very much less privileged than we are.
Good wishes to all for a continued summer of sunshine. Keep singing until we meet again in the Main Hall at Huish Episcopi Academy in Langport on Monday 10th September 2018.
