Preparing a concert in just 12 weeks was always going to generate some nerves, but when we all came together in the beautiful surroundings of the King's Lynn Town Hall, everything clicked in to place for a fantastic beginning to the festive season, and an evening which proved to be our most successful to date.
As we walked out into the gloriously gilt assembly room to a full house, we knew that we were going to have a wonderful evening, and we were all thrilled by how the concert went. With a collection of Christmas music, from a medieval Christmas carol sung in Latin (did I mention the nerves) to traditional carols and modern Christmas music, there was something for everyone.
Our audience were in good voice, and we were delighted when they joined in with the fun.
Thanks to the amazing generosity of our audience, we raised £801.86 for The Big C.
Money which will go towards providing support, information and treatment facilities for people suffering from cancer across the Norfolk area.
We were all honored when the Big C selected us to perform as part of their 35th anniversary celebrations, and are so thrilled that with your support we were able to do them proud.
With thanks to all at The Big C, especially Brian and Brenda who came on the night. Thanks also to Rob Gordon and Mark Gregory for their assistance, and to Colin for stepping in at the last moment to play for us.
Special thanks also go to Sainsbury's in King's Lynn for kindly donating the refreshments for the evening, and to everyone else involved who helped make the evening such a success.
Simply Sing will be holding various events throughout next year in support of The Big C, so do watch this space for more information.
