Sydenham Singers, Raise the Roof Community Choir, Sing Out Streatham and Peckham Rye Sings joined us for a gorgeous afternoon of sunshine and music in our beautiful Nature Reserve.
Singing and Sunshine
The 4 choirs and their choir leaders produced a fantastic array of songs. It started with a particularly moving medially that had the singers walking through the nature reserve as they sang. All four choirs that took the stage, which was set in the striking wildflower meadow, looked vibrant and colourful, and sang with a confidence and a flourish!
A very hot wood-fired oven was producing delicious pizza at a rate and green salad accompanied, picked freshly from our sunshine filled garden. Cakes were aplenty, as was the tea and coffee!
Sydenham Singers are based in our Resource Centre and often fill our garden with beautiful sound. As with past fundraisers, they decided to donate all the takings to our work. The event raised a whopping £630! We are very, very grateful for both a lovely afternoon and the donation.
