A popular community choir has donated £1,350 to the Windsor Homeless Project.

The New Egham Singers handed over a cheque on Monday to the project, which provides immediate practical support to the homeless and vulnerable - working with partner organisations to help bring about change, accommodation and a new, sustainable lifestyle.

The donation represented the proceeds of the choir’s December 2018 Christmas Concert.

The cheque was presented by the choir’s deputy chair Sue Berwick to Sally Wright, tenancy support worker at Windsor Homeless Project.

Sue said: “The aims of our choir is to make tuneful music, have fun, and raise money for good causes. All our singers hugely enjoyed performing the concert and it’s great to know that we are helping others through our efforts”.

Accepting the cheque Sally Wright said: “The New Egham Singers Christmas Concert was a joyful and successful occasion enjoyed by everyone who attended. Our warm thanks go to everyone involved for giving Windsor Homeless Project the opportunity to benefit from the proceeds of its concert. This donation is a wonderful outcome for us.”

New Egham Singers’ next concert will take place on Saturday, July13 at the Performing Arts Centre, ACS Egham International School.
