This year the choir is proud to support the following good causes:

Macmillan improves the lives of people affected by cancer locally. They provide practical, medical, emotional and financial support and push for better cancer care.

The choir has been supporting Macmillan in Wiltshire for many years and for the last 18 years has put on a concert with all the ticket receipts going to Macmillan.  Through this annual concert and other fund raising events we have raised over £40,000 for this excellent cause.
