A group of singers who help raise funds for good causes are looking for charities to fundraise for in 2020, and also are on the lookout for new members.
BridBeat Charity Singers sing for free, helping charities and good causes raise monies for their organisation, with all monies raised staying with that charity or good cause.
Recently, the group raised £420 for the National Rheumatoid Society.
June Clough, a spokesperson for the group said: “The concert for the Rheumatoid society was organised by myself also with the help of Tony and his wife Shelia.
This came about as two of our members have Rheumatoid Arthritis and I thought it would be something nice to give back on my behalf as a Thank you for this wonderful organisation helping not just adults but children as young as two and also teenagers diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis
She added: “We take our audience on a trip down ‘memory lane’ singing well known hits from the 1950’s through to the 1970’s and sometimes into the 90’s. We sing rock songs and ballad’s with the odd comedy song. Our year now is booked up with concerts at Portland Mews in July and in August we are helping to raise monies for St Catherine’s Hospice at Flamborough Methodist Chapel on Tuesday 6th August at 7.30 pm. In September we are at Sewerby Park on Sunday 15th at 1.30pm in the Orangery also Barmston Village Hall Saturday 21st 7.30pm . On the Friday 9th November we are opening the fund raising concert for East Coast Churches and Community Music Festival.” BridBeat practice every Tuesday night at the Conservative Club on Tennyson Avenue in Bridlington.
