Choir purchase a ShelterBox

President of Donaghadee Male Voice Choir Lady Sylvia Hermon presents a cheque to Valerie Goodchild, Vice President of Donaghadee Rotary Club, for the purchase of a ShelterBox. Also present are Robert McIlveen, Immediate Past-President of Donaghadee Rotary Club, Michael Pritchard Honorary Secretary and Richard Montgomery Vice-Chairman of the choir

Donaghadee Rotary Club achieved over £2000 this year for Shelterbox. In addition to the choir’s purchase of a shelter box, the main collection was at the Annual Carol Service in Donaghadee 1st Presbyterian Church and a generous donation from a married couple living in Donaghadee 

“The 2017-2018 season got underway with practices commencing on Monday 4 September in the Robert Wilson Hall.

We already had an engagement on our schedule for Thursday 12 October when we provided a musical backdrop to the presentation of awards at the Construction Employers’ Federation Confederation Awards Ceremony held in the Culloden Hotel and Spa. This was once again something completely different for the choir and was greatly appreciated and enjoyed by the huge and enthusiastic VIPs, attendees and representatives of the the construction industry from across Northern Ireland and beyond..

One week to the day on 19 October we set off for Warsaw for a concert tour. Details are covered in the events section of the website but suffice it to say that it was a most successful tour, with wonderful warm and appreciative audiences.

Sadly, we learned during our return journey from Warsaw that Raymond Gregg had passed away on 24 October. 

It is very hard to accept that Raymond was with the choir last October 2106 on its visit to Chatel-Guyon in the Auvergne, France.”
