Bosham based choir Harbour Voices is holding their annual concert in aid of local charity Dementia Support. Each year the choir supports a charity with one of their performances and each year they draw quite a crowd.
The group is conducted by Ben Lathbury, who’s incredible enthusiasm for singing and encouraging others to sing could rival Gareth Malone. The choir sing a range of songs from the musicals such as Les Misérables and Oklahoma, to pop classics by ABBA and the Beatles.
Natalie Burchett, Community Fundraiser for Dementia Support, attended one of the choir’s practices: “The group were incredible; they sounded very professional but it was clear they also have great fun. The concert will be a wonderful evening and we are very grateful to Harbour Voices for holding this event for us.”
The charity supports people living with dementia and their families in the West Sussex area. They have a support centre – Sage House, based in Tangmere.
The concert for Dementia Support will be held at St Paul’s Church, Chichester, on Saturday 2nd November 2019, 7.00pm – 9.00pm.
Funds raised from the concert will go to Dementia Support’s Wayfinder Appeal to provide more vital dementia services and support in the community.
Tickets are £5 each and are available to buy from Dementia Support’s centre Sage House in Tangmere – 01243 888691 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. From Harbour Voices member Pam Sweet (from September) – 01243 574239.
