Ladies Circle Virtual Coffee Morning

The Ladies Circle Virtual Coffee Morning, for Choir, family, friends and Patrons, is only 2 weeks away.
All monies raised will be the Ladies Circle donation to the Choir for
this year.

We will be using the Choir’s “Just Giving” page for donations which this year due to the ‘Match-It’ fund doubles every penny raised.

We aim to make it a fun, relaxed morning, with a chance to chat with
people we haven’t seen for a long time, hear the premiere of the Choir’s
new virtual recording, bid for cake in the cake auction and test your
knowledge in a Quiz. Also, the winners of the Lucky Squares Christmas Raffle will be announced.

Do join us as it will be lovely to see you all again.
If you are unable to join, but wish to make a donation we would be more
than grateful.

Keep safe and well and, hopefully, see you at the Coffee Morning. For more information mail us at info@honleymvc.co.uk

Choir to benefit from Co-op Local Community Fund

We are delighted to announce that we have been chosen to benefit as a Co-op Local Community Fund.

At a time when funds for community groups and charitable organisations are becoming more difficult to access, we are incredibly grateful for this opportunity to make a real difference in Huddersfield and its environs.

We are raising funds for our post Covid-19 preparations such as extra rehearsals (due to social distancing), a free concert for our community (once permitted to do so) and associated technology requirements.

This award will not only provide valuable support to the Choir, by contributing to physical and mental wellbeing, health and social life of the singing membership, but will also enable the Choir to meet its overall charitable aims and objectives of extending its community involvement, thereby benefitting the wider local community.

To help us raise vital funds, we’ll be relying on Co-op Members. When a member buys selected branded products and services, the Co-op will give a helping hand to local causes like ours. 

Co-op members can select us as their local cause by visiting:

https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/51177

We really hope that people will visit the website and select us as their local cause.

Supporting our Charities

It was terrific to welcome representatives from Fairfield School, our charity of the year to our zoom rehearsal on Tuesday to formally announce that the recent ‘Performathon’ raised just over £1800 for the school. Both the Head and Business Manager were delighted with the donation and thanked the choir for their continued support!

HEROES

It was a real pleasure to welcome the Head of Engagement & Operations of the NHS Help Them Help Us charity to our rehearsal on Tuesday. Providing for the welfare & wellbeing of NHS staff on the frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic. We were able to formally inform them of our Performathon donation which totalled £2979.94. Thank you to everyone who supported us!

Just a few words…

We would like to send our best wishes to all of our members, supporters, sponsors, patrons, friends, family and our audience. We have not sung together since March, but have met online every week since then. It seems such a long time since we heard each others voices, but we will be back again one day soon. Have a good weekend everybody!

We Rise Again (Phil Kirkpatrick)

A CHALLENGE WAS SET

AND THE TARGET WAS MET

A GROUNDBREAKING TASK

WAS ALL THAT WAS ASKED

HELPED BY TWO CHRISES AND CERI

STEVEN AND ROGER WERE KEY

THEY CREATED IN THEIR “CUBE”

A REMARKABLE YOUTUBE

A PROGRAMME SO WIDE

 AND PRESENTED WITH PRIDE

ENCOURAGING FRIENDS AND RELATIONS

 TO GIVE THEIR DONATIONS

THE GIFTS THAT WERE GIVEN

 WERE JUST MADE IN HEAVEN

WITH SO MANY IN NEED

 HONLEY SALUTES YOU INDEED

LET’S PRAY THE CHOIR CAN REMAIN

FOR THE DAY WHEN WE RISE AGAIN

Just a Little Ditty….

THE PERFORMATHON HAS SHOWN – THAT OUR CHOIR’S REALLY GROWN
INTO ONE OF LOVE AND AFFECTION – AND MAYBE FOUND A NEW DIRECTION SO, IS THIS THE WAY TO GO – TO PERFORM A CHORAL SHOW?

THERE’S NEW MUSIC WE ARE LEARNING – BUT TO SING LIVE IS ALL WE’RE YEARNING
OUR REPERTOIRE HAS MANY CHOICES – AND LOCKDOWN HASN’T TAKEN OUR VOICES WHICH MEANS OUR HEARTS ARE FULL OF FIRE – TO RETURN AS HONLEY MALE VOICE CHOIR

WE CAN HOLD OUR HEADS UP HIGH – AND WE SHOULD TRY TO REACH THE SKY STEVEN’S RAISED THE BAR – TO GET US WHERE WE ARE
BUT THERE’S MUCH MORE TO BE DONE – AND WE’RE HAVING LOTS OF FUN (PK)

13 days to go!

We have been very busy at Honley! It’s hard to believe we only have 13 days left of our fundraising Performathon. We have been really appreciative of all your support and encouragement. You can still donate by using the link on our website! We are still continuing to rehearse online, but as you can imagine it is not the same. Like many other choirs we are planning and preparing to return sometime soon, but we want to make sure that we have read all the guidance. Wish us luck! By the way, did you see us on BBC Look North? Didn’t we do well? It’ll be the big screen next!
