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
  • Almost £2000 for our second afternoon tea concert in July 2018, this time at the larger Drill Hall, where we were still overflowing and had to turn people away. Again, the money raised went to the Admiral Nurses.
