BLC Does it again!
As in previous years a local organisation has benefitted from the Basingstoke Ladies’ Choir Christmas concert when the choir sang to raise funds for The “Holiday@Home” project run by St Joseph’s RC church.
The St. Joseph's Holiday@Home Team provides a meeting place every 2 months on a Tuesday afternoon for people who are isolated, elderly or disabled` of any denomination in the local community, where they can socialise, enjoy some entertainment, and enjoy a chat together and an afternoon tea.
A cheque for £347 was presented to Alfredo Lavorgna and Eileen Mavoigna the founders and organisers of St Josephs holiday at home, by representatives from the choir who were joined by the Mayor of Basingstoke, Cllr Sean Keating, who gave a talk about his role before everyone tucked into a lovely tea. £50 was also raised at the concert in a retiring collection. Alfredo was very excited about this unexpected amount and divulged half of the secret plans now afoot to treat the group to a surprise outing in the summer
