The Alveston Singers recently performed two concerts of ‘Songs From the Shows’ and would like to thank the audiences for their generous donations to the choir’s chosen charities, Cancer Research and Children’s Hospice South West. A total of £1137 was raised which will be added to donations at our next concerts and divided equally between the two charities.
Since the choir was founded in 1977 with the aim of enjoying singing and raising money for charity, many thousands of pounds have been raised due to the continued support of friends, families and the community. Our next concerts will be on Saturday December 8th and Tuesday December 11th when we look forward to welcoming our audiences once again.

Throughout the summer Thornbury Volunteer Centre have several organisations who are willing to hold “Taster sessions” for potential new volunteers. Organisations working with children, families and disabled people, charity shops, conservation and heritage organisations will open their doors for a morning or afternoon and give potential new volunteers the chance to talk to existing volunteers, learn more about the organisation and then “have a go” themselves. Potential volunteers are under no obligation to continue volunteering but we hope that it will give them a feel for what is involved.
