Felling Male Voice Choir had a busy programme of concerts and events both in the UK and overseas, but they still managed to support North East communities in 1987.
They started the year in Durham where they were invited to sing by the Scouts and Guides Association at Belmont Parish Church. This concert was to support their new headquarters.
In February, the choir performed in aid of the appeal for a new organ and altar at the Sacred Heart RC Church in Amble.
In March, the choir performed two concerts for charity. One in Sunderland for Rotary International and the other in Brampton for the Bowling Club.
The choir travelled to Darlington to perform a joint concert with “The Richardson Singers”.
Two hospitals benefitted from the Felling Choir during 1987. The choir sang in Guisborough in aid of the heart unit at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle in April. A concert was also given at Northallerton Hermitage Hospital for the Friends of the Hospital.
The choir helped two churches in Sunderland to celebrate their Centenaries. The first was in June for the Park Road Methodist Church. The second was in October at St. John’s Methodist Church.
The year was ended with a second concert to support the Royal National Lifeboat Institution at Seaton Sluice Methodist Church.
What a busy year of activities but many good local causes supported!
