Choir performances are the high note

Cynthia Spencer Hospice Choir have been busy recently, not only raising everyone's spirits, but raising funds for the Hospice too. Fresh from their performance for patients, staff and families at the opening of our new Woodland Walk extension, the choir performed for the Salvation Army Fellowship Group at Northampton Salvation Army Centre. This was followed up by an evening performance at Towcester Road Methodist Church, an Easter Fair at the Obelisk Centre and finally at an Easter Cake sale in the Hospice Coffee Shop.

At the Coffee Shop performance, they caught up with Jacqueline Hughes from Towcester Road Methodist Church who presented them with a cheque for £355.00 raised from their performance and other fundraising events held throughout the year. Jacqueline (pictured above presenting the cheque), whose Husband Martin was a patient at the Hospice for some time before his death in 2014 said "Everyone loved the choir's performance at the church, and their choice of songs could've been made by Martin as so many of them were his favourites."

Community Fundraiser, Tommy Gardner said "Our Choir, made up entirely of volunteers under the tutelage of Graham Rogers (pictured receiving the cheque) are really growing their repertoire and are bringing great joy, not only at Hospice events, but they also have a busy calendar this year. If you have an event which would benefit from a performance by the choir, then please get in touch.
