The Uckfield Singers' Summer Concert, held at the Civic Centre on Saturday July 20th, was a bittersweet affair, as it was the first and last summer concert with
Musical Director Monica Das. Work commitments mean she will no longer be able to lead the choir, and we will be looking for a new M.D in the autumn.
Monica said how much she had enjoyed her time with the choir and how they had made her feel very welcome. Nick Poole, Chairman of the Singers, paid tribute to
Monica and her contribution to the choir's development. She will be missed.
On the evening the proceeds from the raffle amounted to £360.00 and Nick Poole, our Chairman, presented the cheque to Michelle Hulse of The
Children’s Respite Trust, a charity that provides respite care for disabled children and support for their families throughout East Sussex.
