Waitrose support for HART Male Voice Choir – Wednesday 27 July
Hart Male Voice Choir were delighted to receive an award of £1000 from the Waitrose “Music Matters” Fund which supports local charitable community music activities. At Wednesday’s Hart Male Voice Choir rehearsal in Cross Barn, Odiham, a presentation of the cheque for £1000 was made to Hart MVC chairman Eamonn O’Rourke by Waitrose Yateley staff members Sarah Mantell and Rosemary Brookes. This Waitrose award was in recognition of the choir’s many years of charity concerts and ‘Supporting Young Singers’ activities in the Hampshire region.
Eamonn O’Rourke and the choir expressed their thanks to Sarah and Rosemary with a toast to Waitrose and a performance of a few rousing songs including a special choice of the exciting Russian folk song ‘Kalinka’. This award from Waitrose is a welcome contribution to the running costs of Hart Male Voice Choir which is a non-profit making organisation.
