New Year, New Charity!

The New Year kicked off in style with a social at The Martin. Mick again did us proud with a fantastic hot and cold buffet, and this time the music was provided by our own wonderful Shaun and Mark. A couple of new members came to check us out and meet the gang; it is a testament to their strength of character that they actually came back the next week to rehearse!
Our first official event of the year was another Krazy Karaoke! Again, this was a social, but with a purpose- we wanted to welcome our new Charity of the Year, and say thank you and handover a large cheque to our outgoing one! We had a wonderful evening, with eclectic performances from Ollie Murs, Elaine Paige and Barbara Dickson, S Club Seven and Grease! Once again we had an incredible spread of food, this time provided by the choir and guests. We were delighted to welcome a group from The Birchwood Centre, the charity that we will be supporting in 2012. We were also delighted to hand over a cheque for £1100 to West Lancs Positive Living that we know they will put to good use helping their clients lead full and active lives. Sadly (or fortunately) both groups had left before they had chance to witness Shaun’s ‘Wuthering Heights’ accompanied by his oldest son clinging desperately to his leg, ignoring his pleas to leave him his dignity (Shaun’s pleas, that is, not Harry’s!) but we ended the evening off in style with a rousing chorus of ‘New York New York’!
