A YOUTH choir look set to perform in style after they received a batch of new shirts from a caring city group.
Worcester Young Voices was launched last Autumn and their year anniversary was capped off in style thanks to Worcester Round Table, who donated blue polo tops to the youngsters.
The choir is set up and run by parents within the city and after reaching the 12-month milestone they now plan to develop its membership across all age ranges for both boys and girls.
Bridget Brickley, one of the parents, said: “We are delighted with this wonderful gift from Worcester Round Table.
“The children give regular performances across the county and also entered the Worcester Festival earlier this year, so this donation means that they now have a smart image and co-ordinated look at such events.”
It is open to all young people, regardless of ability, and a broad and varied programme of events and performance opportunities are on offer.
They meet on Saturday morning between 10am and 11.30am at the Magdalene Room, St George’s Square in Barbourne.
Paul Valentine, chairman of the round table, said: “The funding of the polo shirts has been possible due to the ticket and gate sales to such events as the annual bonfire night at the Worcester Racecourse.
“Every pound from the entrance fee goes back into local community projects such as the Worcester Young Voices and this year we are hoping to attract more people into the event.
“With the communities support at the turnstiles the bonfire at Pitchcroft can continue to be Worcester’s traditional charity bonfire event for the next generation, while raising much needed money to support many local good causes.”
The bonfire is being held on Saturday, November 1 from 6.30pm.
