Members of the Ross Choristers presented a cheque for £1,300 to the outgoing Mayor of Ross-on-Wye, Councillor David Ravenscroft, on Wednesday, May 10th.
The Choristers held a charity concert at the Baptist Church on Saturday, April 29th, in aid of the Mayor’s chosen charities, the Friends of Ross Community Hospital and SSAFA?(Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association).
The concert at the Baptist Church had been a resounding success, and the Gazette received several letters from some of the audience members, who wanted to highlight how much they had enjoyed the night.
John Williams, one of the Ross Choristers, told the Gazette that this year marks the group’s 10th anniversary, and the concert they held at the Baptist Church was their biggest ever - they had more singers, performed in front of their largest audience, and raised the largest amount for charity.
John’s wife Pat added that the Choristers have raised a great deal of money for charity since they were first formed.
Josie O’Driscoll, director of the Ross Choristers, told the Gazette that the group has several concerts coming up, including one at Newnham on Severn, and they have an invitation from the Mayor of Leominster to perform.
She added that if any charities in Ross would like to invite the Choristers to put on a concert to help raise funds, they are there to help.
