Otley choirs help to raise £550 for singer’s charity
10:00am Monday 4th March 2013 in News
A show by two Otley-based choirs has raised nearly £550 for a charity founded by one of their members.
The Courthouse and Me Time community choirs 'sang for their supper' at Farnley Hall on Pancake Day.
Their repertoire included a French pancake song and an African lullaby, and the performance brought in £548 for the charity Chameleon - Developing Education.
Chameleon was set up in 2006 by a member of the Courthouse Choir, Doreen Hodgson, and aims to help provide and develop free or subsidised education in South Africa for children who would otherwise go without.
Both choirs are led by Dave Stewart of Sing Out, and welcome new members. The Courthouse Choir meets from 1.30pm to 3.30pm on Tuesdays at Otley Courthouse, while Me Time meets between 8pm and 9. 30pm, also on Tuesdays and at the same venue.
