Local community choir, Wessex Chorus is looking for Christmas Music events after the Pandemic Lockdown to help raise much needed funds for its current charity, Forest Holme and other charities during the next festive month.
Members of the Wessex Chorus went to a performance of the Marriage of Figaro at the Poole Lighthouse with our patron, Gaynor Keeble, in the role of Marcellina. A wonderful evening's opera with fun and laughter.
Poole Rotary has presented us with a cheque for £250 for new equipment as a show of positive support for our works.
They invited me to collect the cheque in Canford Cliffs today, 5th December
Well done you all!
Much of the charity work here involves the ‘gypsy families’ known as ‘Lamanis’ in India, of which there are over 6 million, 2.25 million of whom live in Karnataka but many travel to Goa to find work and income to support their children. It is a sad fact that the Lamani husband seems to disappear from view after one year of marriage, leaving the Mother to do everything for the children.
