Fundraising

Our finest moment to date. A whopping £1257 and not forgetting the 23 pence! This was mainly thanks to one of our tenors, Jim Tester, front left, who ploughed all his energy into publicising the event as a thankyou to the Admiral Nurses for the support they had given him throughout his time as carer for his wife, Helen.

Horsham Harmony is a choir for people who want to ‘give back’ to our local community. At Christmas we sing in a variety of settings, taking the music to the people, from independent retirement communities to residential care homes. As well as these voluntary performances we raise a considerable amount of money each year:

  • Singing at Age UK summer fete, Lavinia House, Horsham: £1,600 total for all contributors
  • A private concert for the residents of Jasmine Court Retirement Home: £60 raised for the Orpheus Centre (a special performing arts centre in Surrey for young disabled artists).
  • Afternoon tea concert at St Leonard’s Church Horsham in aid of Admiral Nurses for their work with dementia sufferers and their families: £1257.23
