Beautiful Budock

STITHIANS LADIES CHOIR SUMMER CONCERT

Saturday July 2nd found the Ladies singing at St Budock Church, helping to raise money for the Cornwall branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

An unusual perspective of the choir!

A large and enthusiastic audience appreciated the varied programme sung by the Ladies which contrasted nicely with the jazz and blues songs provided by Anne Parkes and the piano solo from Maestro Rico Gerber. Peter Asplet as compère held the whole evening together – “Together” being the final number from the Ladies and the recurring theme of their enduring harmonious friendships.

The event was beautifully organised by Connie and Peter Asplet with scrummy refreshments by members of the Church and well over £500 was raised for MND Cornwall. A huge thank you to everyone!

One thought on “Beautiful Budock

  1. The concert at Budock church was a great success and much enjoyed by all who were there, including choir members. Members of Budock Church are the most generous of people. Not only have they been fund raising for the Motor Neurone disease association for the whole of June and July, they also contributed a magnificent sum on the night of the concert. Added to that, they provided all the refreshments after the concert, and served everybody with a big smile. Thank you all so much and we will confirm the total amount raised (already around £800!!) when we have the final figure. Many, many thanks to everyone involved.
