East Riding of Yorkshire Council
Our President’s chosen charity for the choir year July 2016-July 2017 was Hornsea Inshore Rescue (HIR), which works closely with the Coastguard and other emergency services to ensure people remain safe while enjoying the sea around Hornsea. More recently they became part of the East Yorkshire flood response team and were recently deployed to help people in the nearby city of Hull during some serious flooding. We raised more than £1600 for the Charity at a joint concert with Mansfield and District Male Voice Choir on 2nd June 2017. See their website at:
Chairman Terry Lynn’s chosen Charity for the choir year July 2017-July 2018 is the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. See:
We have a very loyal band of Patrons, about 80 at present, who are unstinting in their support for our Choir. We in turn provide them with their own free Patrons’ Concert each year. They are also invited to our Choir Annual Social Evening and Dinner .
Some Patrons also accompany us on trips out of the area to Joint Concerts with other Choirs. In June 2016, some went with us to the Lake District for joint concerts with Kendal and Barrow-in-Furness Male Voice Choirs as well as enjoying a very pleasant stay in the Cumbria Grand Hotel, Grange-over-Sands with stop-offs at Skipton and Richmond.
We consider our Patrons to be very much part of our Choir.
We ask our Patrons to contribute just £15 pa each to choir finances.
