Stockport Cerebral Palsy Society was delighted to have been chosen as Crystal Chords nominated Charity for 2015 and were very grateful to the choir for their sterling fundraising efforts throughout the year that helped raise £2,000 for the Charity.
Stockport CP Society has worked closely in partnership with the Crystal Chords to not only raise significant much needed funds for the Society but also to build the awareness about the Charity and the work that they do in supporting disabled children and adults in the local community.
The Choir presented Society Fundraiser Adrian Rigby-Bates with a cheque for £2,000 at their concert at Stockport Guildhall on Thursday 25 February 2016. Funds were raised by the Chords Ladies throughout the year from such events as their 35th Anniversary Concert in May, Heaton Moor Festival plant sales in June, their Christmas concert with Silk Brass on 5 December in Davenport that raised £583.00, Bents Garden Centre Christmas sing out that raised £155.00 and the Asda Stockport sing out on Friday 18 December that raised £221.00
Society Fundraiser, Adrian Rigby-Bates thanked the Chords for their support by saying “ Everyone at Stockport CP Society would like to thank Crystal Chords for their fabulous support over 2015. We are very grateful to the ladies for their sterling efforts fundraising and raising a fantastic amount of £2,000 throughout the year. In addition, the awareness that was built for the Charity from all the publicity from the events has really helped and everyone had a great deal of fun taking part to raise funds for such a good cause”
