Strike the Harp and Join the Chorus!
It’s that time of year again - Advent has come around; the time for singing carols and spreading Christmas cheer!
On a cold Saturday in December, full voices were on show as a small group of volunteers came together to sing carols and help raise funds and awareness for EVC Uganda. We were once again kindly invited by Morrisons Supermarket on Ampthill Road, Bedford - as always, they were fantastic hosts.
Many of the group also took part last year and this time, a few new faces also joined. A combination of traditional Christmas carols and popular festive songs was on the menu. Intending to cater for all tastes, some pieces were performed in choral style with voices alone in full harmony, whereas others were accompanied with an array of instruments. The toe-tapping numbers were highly energetic; the old tambourine and sleigh bells enhanced the tooting flute and twanging guitars and ukuleles.
There were some great comments by passing shoppers, with children stopping to listen, sing along and enthusiastically throw coins into the collection buckets! The two hours of singing saw a fantastic total of £209.49 raised!
Thank you to Morrisons for hosting us again and to all our carollers for taking part.
A very Merry Christmas from all the trustees and volunteers at EVC Uganda!
