We are constantly working to support many charities and good causes, well known and some not so well known as our monthly charity collection reflects the generosity of the choir members.  With so many causes needing help, we invite suggestions from within our ranks as to where our efforts may be focused and this spreads financial support as fairly as possible across a wide range of deserving causes.

Wednesday 23rd November 2022.

Donaghadee Male Voice Choir (Chairman Ed Wheeler) handed a £250 donation to Alan Crouser and Shirley Cochrane representing the Donaghadee Heritage Preservation Company who are managing the restoration of this exceptional craft, keeping alive the memories of the crews and the boat over many years saving lives at sea.

It’s most memorable rescue work was noted at the sinking of the Princess Victoria in January 1953.

A small group from the choir were treated to a guided tour and explanation of the ongoing work.

As we enjoy singing we strive to entertain, meet new people, perform with many artists, travel to destinations near and far to promote choral  music and in the process gain much needed funds for many charities.  Concerts, church services etc allow for the work to continue as we can support other organisations in their efforts to fund raise for their particular chosen charities and some examples can be seen here along with the choirs chosen recipients.
