CHARITY BASED 'NOT-FOR-PROFIT' CHOIR

Our community choir started in 2007 - we are a large not-for-profit choir, our members comprise all ages and abilities who love to sing and at the same time raise money for local & national charities. We sing everything from Les Miserables to Abba, Elton John to Rogers & Hammerstein and everything inbetween. Our rehearsals are fun in a relaxed friendly atmosphere.  We hold two concerts a year, also occasionally attending events and workshops. 

We have sponsored and decorated a tree in the Holy Cross Festival of Christmas Trees.

On 16th  September, a small group from the choir sang at the Volunteer Bureau’s “Celebrate” Event at the Civic Centre. Thanks to Ron Hill for the photos.

In July 2017, Sue Daniels stepped down as Chairman after 8 years. Sue is a founder member of the choir, and has served 10 years on committee. She was presented with a specially commisioned bowl, a card made by Quinta Dean and signed by all the choir members,  and vouchers. Choir member Erika Pratt had made a special ‘S’ cake of chocolate brownies, eclairs and strawberries, enjoyed by everyone. She has been made Honorary President in recognition of her hard work and dedication to the choir.

 

Nick Poole takes over as Chariman.

On Saturday 22nd July, the Uckfield Singers gave their 11th annual Summer Concert in the Civic Centre.

 

The audience were entertained with a wide variety of songs from pop to folk, musicals and films.

 

The first half began with “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Freddie Mercury, and finished with a medley of songs by Richard Rodgers; the second half started with a rousing rendition of “Let the River Run” by Carly Simon and ended up with a medley of highlights from the musical Grease.

 

At the end of the concert, a giant cheque for £425.25 was presented to Georgina Cook on behalf of Chestnut Tree House Children’s’ Hospice, from the proceeds of the raffle.

 

Once again, many thanks go to C.P.J Field (inc. Cooper & Sons and Fuller & Scott) for sponsoring the cost of the programmes, Gale and Woolgar for ticket sales, and to Quarry Printing for once again producing excellent flyers and programmes.
