At the end of October, the Treorchy Male Choir performed at a special concert to raise funds for SFCS. We are delighted to announce that the concert raised an amazing £3,058.67!

On the evening itself, our Chair of Trustees, John Wallace, announced that we hoped to raise £1,500 from the event, so we are thrilled with the end result. Thank you to everyone for your generosity.

The fantastic sum which was raised will help to fund the services that St. Francis’ Children’s Society provides to our adopters and their children. We are proud to be there for our adoptive families for life, and our support services are available to anyone who has adopted through us – whether recently or years ago.

Our support services are reliant on voluntary funding – we could not provide this invaluable support without the help of our valued supporters and fundraisers.

Treorchy Male ChoirThe world famous Treorchy Male Choir has been recognised as one of the greatest choral ensembles of all time. Early competition victories were followed by regular radio and television broadcasts, feature films and an unequalled number of commercial recordings. The Choir has given several Royal Command Performances, appeared alongside international entertainers and undertaken several tours to Canada, USA, New Zealand and Australia.

They were invited to perform at the Trinity Methodist Church, Leighton Buzzard by Mrs Marilyn Powell, an adoptive parent and active supporter of SFCS.  We are incredibly grateful for all her hard work in making this concert happen.

The venue and refreshments were generously provided free of charge and we were honoured to receive sponsorship from local firm Control Print Solutions Ltd.

This really was a fantastic team effort and we are immensely grateful for everyone’s support and generosity. Keep an eye out for more SFCS fundraising events in 2018!
