Choir hands over cash to help hospices

Magician Dan Churchley from Southsea, will attempt to escape from a straitjacket whilst suspended 100 metres above sea level, upside down, beneath the Emirates Spinnaker Tower's glass floor Sky Walk. As well as captivating tower visitors, the stunt will also aim to raise money for CLIC Sargent, UKs leading cancer charity for children and young people.

Members of the Widley-based Reflections ladies’ singing group have made their annual donations to charity.

Each year, the choir contributes the funds raised by singing to organisations at venues around the area.

Secretary Janet Williams said: ‘We had a very successful 2012.

‘As a result, we are delighted to have been able to donate £400 each to the Rowans Hospice and the Naomi House Hospice.

‘We would like to thank most sincerely all our wonderful clients who we have entertained and who have contributed so generously.

‘We never tire of seeing the reaction from some of our audiences when we arrive - it is pure pleasure to perform just for the sheer fun and happy faces we gain.’

The group has a wide repertoire of costume and song including musicals, the 1940s and ‘The Good Old Days.’

Rehearsals are held on Monday afternoons at Christchurch Hall, Widley. For further details and to book performances, call (023) 92420070.
