How much did we raise for charity at our recent concerts? Thank you to everyone who sang or supported us at our fund-raising events. Together we can make a real difference.
Over the SfF years, in Pembrokeshire and in Leicestershire, we have raised in the region of £100,000, an extraordinary amount of money, especially given the fact that most of our concerts are free!
A small group of us has just returned from singing at a special meeting of the local branch of Cancer Reserach UK at Tregwynt Mill. What a lovely morning - a wonderful setting, scrummy cakes and coffee, an extremely enthusiastic audience ... and quite fabulous singing. Thank you to everyone who sang - audience and SfF-ers!
The young people of POINT really helped us to Raise the Roof at the Town Hall in Fishguard. What an atmosphere! The audience came from far and wide - including Cheltenham, Swindon ... and Malaysia - and was hugely complimentary. We did our bit in raising £245, which goes much of the way towards the cost of a safe-guarding course for some three hundred local youngsters.
Our joint concert with the Goodwick Junior Band raised £400 for a defibrillator at the Phoenix Centre on an extremely warm evening. Super stuff!
Cruise ship visit
Fantastic comments from the extremely appreciative American audience. We've been paid £400, which will be divided between Wales Air Ambulance, Sartori, RNLI (Fushguard and Goodwick branch) and the Grenfell Tower holiday.

Raise the Roof in Newport
