Schools Choir Competition
The Park Community School and Devonport High School, schools from Barnstaple and Plymouth, won the chance to perform in a cathedral after emerging victorious from the Devon Schools Choir Competition run by the La La choirs.
Sam Abrahams, from La La Choirs, said: “This is the second year of running the Schools Choir Competition and I have been over the moon with the standard of the entries. The choirs that made it through to the final were all fantastic in their own way, and I feel privileged to have been able to get to work with such talented youngsters.”
CLIC Sargent Singers
The event will also feature a special performance from a group of young
musicians, all of whom have been affected by cancer, in a group called the CLIC Sargent Singers.
The four piece group will be led by Lydia Haynes, 21, who was diagnosed with thyroid (throat) cancer at the age of 16 and thought she would never be able to sing again.
The CLIC Sargent Singers met through the charity’s music programme, which
provides young people affected by cancer with trips and events where they can practice performing and songwriting, assisted by volunteer professionals.
George Stephenson, 23, from Plymouth, will be performing alongside Lydia. He was supported by CLIC Sargent when he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia after finding a lump on his neck.
George said: “CLIC Sargent gave me lots of information on events and services, like financial assistance, therapy, workshops of all different kinds. They would always check how I was doing, and always genuinely cared.
“The music programme had such a great feeling. You get to meet some brilliant people, who understand what you are going through and that isn’t the focus of things, you just get to make music and record and it was great.”
Making a difference
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Jordan Anderton said: “CLIC Sargent is
extremely grateful for the continuous support we receive from the La La Choir and the awareness they create for our charity.
"Please come along and get in the Christmas spirit this December, not only will you be making a difference to CLIC Sargent but are guaranteed a fantastic festive evening.”
With thanks to our sponsors
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Jordan Anderton continued: “ I would also like to thank our sponsor Trowers & Hamlins solicitors for their support. Thanks to their generosity, more of the money raised on the night will be going to support children and young people with cancer.”
