Our Christmas concert in 2018 supported 2 charities. This week members of the choir presented a cheque for £347 to the independent Basingstoke Charity YPI which supports young people aged 11 to 25 and their families by offering counselling and mentoring. In addition a bucket collection on the evening rasied just over £50. In 2018 1000 individuals in this area recieved support. At a time when council contributions to such charities are being reduced we are proud to have funded a course of councselling for 2 young people with the money raised at our Christmas concert.
