That concert by Budleigh Salterton Male Voice Choir which I wrote about last September at http://budleighbrewsterunited.blogspot.com/2010/09/singing-for-fairlynch.html last year raised an impressive £1,350.00 for Fairlynch Museum.
"Each year we do a concert for our own funds which enables us to stage 10 to 12 concerts for various charities without charge and to maximise funds raised," explains Choir Secretary Adrian Haysom.
"This year's concert is on Saturday 5 March at 7.30 pm at Tower Street Methodist Church, Exmouth, where we will be joined by the Rame Peninsula Male Voice Choir from Cornwall."
And naturally, he feels, "It would be wonderful if Friends of Fairlynch could be there."
Sales of the Budleigh Salterton choir's latest CD are also helping to swell funds for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust. Over the years the choir has produced four or five CDs and tapes with recordings of a wide variety of songs from its extensive repertoire, ranging from rousing welsh hymns through spirituals, music from shows and other popular melodies.
For every CD sold £2.00 will go directly to the Devon Air Ambulance Trust to help in their vital work. The CD will be available for £8.00 each at all eight Devon Air Ambulance Charity Shops across the county. The shop locations are Exmouth, Exeter (Heavitree Road and Cowick St.), Plymouth, Newton Abbot, Barnstaple, Honiton and Topsham.
The CD will also be on sale at all Budleigh Salterton Male Voice Choir's future concerts as listed on the future concerts page of the website at http://www.budleighmvc.co.uk/ For more details of the CD, which costs They cost £8 plus £1.99 p&p email Mike Peacock at firstname.lastname@example.org
