In 2017 the Choir participated in Sing for Water, raising money for the charity Water Aid at The Scoop in London. This annual mass choir event takes place at the Thames Festival raising funds for WaterAid. Hundreds of singers from choirs across the UK come together to sing a wonderful set of water themed songs. It's an incredibly uplifting and life-affirming event to be part of. Since its initiation in 2000 by Helen Chadwick, Sing for Water has raised over a million pounds for life saving projects bringing clean water and sanitation to some of the world’s poorest communities.
'Lights', one of our Choir Leader Sarah’s compositions, was chosen to be a part of the performance sung by the massed choir of over 500 singers from across the UK.
