Mid Sussex Choir was formed to fund-raise for a local charity in the post-War austerity of the 1940s. Our charity work has continued ever since. The choir supports local charities by fund-raising in retiring collections from concerts and performing at charity events to help them fund-raise. Although the choir itself is a registered charity, our charity number is 1037046, and we are frequently working to a tight budget, we continue to support other charities every year.
In recent years we have donated over £1000 to local charities including The Yews, Age Concern, Headway, the Surrey, Kent and Sussex Air Ambulance, the local Shoreham branch of the RNLI, Cancervive, Parkinson's UK and Chestnut Tree House Hospice. We have also supported the Cats' Protection League, the Queen Alexandra Hospital Home for Veterans and several local churches in their own fundraising activities.
We have taken part in four fund-raising concerts at St Peter's Church, Chailey where, as part of a multi-talented group of performers, we have entertained a local audience with solos, piano pieces, monologues and extracts from our repertoire.
If you represent a local charity and are looking for additional funding why not contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
We select a new charity every autumn for support during the following season and are always interested to hear from local charities looking for small amounts of additional funding. We can't promise a fortune, but we are happy to help in our small way.
