Each time you shop, Waitrose will give you the little green discs which you pop into the large container of your chosen charity (!) at the exit, one at the front and one at the back of the shop. The more discs in our container, the more we will receive.
The caption on the container says “With over 70 members this community choir and orchestra has raised money for good causes over the past 20 years. Cost in holding a concert and the hire or purchase of the music scores alone can be significant. Most of their concerts are held at St James Church in Littlehampton.”

The choir and orchestra supported the charity Parkinson’s UK in this exceptionally moving concert to observe Good Friday.
Conducted by Musical Director James Rushman with a 34 piece orchestra and 57 singers, the concert included The Armed Man as the main work being performed. Soloist for the evening was local Soprano Lorna Moore who sang Oh Divine Redeemer in the first half, accompanied by the orchestra. The concert began with an orchestra piece, Prelude to the Dream of Gerontius by Edward Elgar, followed by the choir and orchestra’s performance of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love (Jenkins) and The Prayer: Laudamus Te, taken from Karl Jenkins vibrant “Gloria”.
The second half performance was The Armed Man which was written for the victims of the Kosovo crisis in 1999. The feelings of horror and of wanting peace all feature in this gripping composition of music which was expertly sung and played, capturing an eclectic mix of emotions. Lorna Moore excelled in voice and expression and the orchestra was outstanding, made special with solo parts from the percussion, flute, cello and trumpets.
The choir and orchestra’s hard work was rewarded with a well-deserved Standing Ovation from the sell-out audience, which included the Mayor of Littlehampton and his Consort. Many congratulations to everyone involved in this wonderful concert.
Update: The bucket collection raised £173.86 - thank you to everyone. There will also be a donation from the choir which will be presented at our annual dinner in August.
