Chelmsford Male Choir supports EDC

Chelmsford Male Voice Choir has a long history of performing in and around Chelmsford and their concert performances and repertoire cover a wide spectrum from choral works to arrangements of ‘pop’ classics and songs from the shows.

In 2015 the Choir became a registered charity to promote the appreciation of choral music in all its aspects, primarily by performing concerts whilst also raising worthwhile funds for a variety of good causes.

For 2023, the Choir collected funds for Essex Dementia Care, generously donated by those attending concerts in Chelmsford. The importance of this support was underlined as one of the choir’s principal members in his early 70’s decided to retire from the Choir after many years of valued membership due to his dementia. The Choir were therefore delighted to present a cheque for £550 to Essex Dementia Care on 16thJanuary 2024.

Kelly Bleasdale, Senior Manager for EDC attended the cheque presentation and said “We are most grateful for this kind donation. As a small charity we rely on this type of generous support which helps us to assist more people with dementia in the community.  Thank you for making me feel so welcome at the event and inviting me to attend your amazing rehearsal. I look forward to attending one of your concerts in the future”.

We have promised to help more people with DEMENTIA in 2024 and are happy to announce the opening of a new ‘Every Day Counts’ activity centre in WRITTLE, Chelmsford.
