Online Christmas Concert for Crisis – December 2020

Due to the lockdown we were unable to hold our Christmas concert. Instead we recorded ourselves at home, these recordings were then mixed by our director, and the audio combined with a slideshow of photographs and put on YouTube. From there was a link to Just Giving and we raised the extraordinary sum of £2650 which, with Gift Aid of £558, resulted in a total of £3208 for Crisis.

We raised £1448 for Crisis through collections after the concert. This was an amazing total achieved through the generosity of our audience and members.

Following the concert on 10th December 2016, we received this letter of thanks from Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The lights for the concert on May 7th, 2016 were kindly provided by Margaret Huntingdon, who asked if a donation could be made to the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity in lieu of payment. Below is the reply from the charity:

Marie Curie donation May 2016

The success of Hexham Orpheus Choir’s concert in November 2014 made it possible for a donation to be made to The British Legion Poppy Appeal. The choir was also most appreciative of Margaret Huntington’s loan of lights, and Margaret decided to pass our donation on to Marie Curie Cancer Care.
