Seaview choir caps successful concert
Seaview’s hugely enjoyable carol concert in St John the Evangelist Church last Saturday was supported by Sound Waves Community Choir and a cappella group, Now and Then and ended with a performance by Seaview’s own choir. The event proved a successful fundraiser, bringing in donations of £774 from a record crowd, estimated at 200 plus. The tally for the Big Sleep in September is still under way, but has so far reached more than £25,000. As public funding dwindles, Seaview is increasingly reliant on its own resources to raise the vital funds for its invaluable work with homeless, vulnerable and distressed people. Nick Terdre writes.

The Seaview choir are busy in the run-up to Christmas: they were due to perform at Seaview Got Talent at the Hatherley Road drop-in centre this afternoon – and again at the free Christmas dinner on Friday 16 December; they will also be singing carols outside Santander’s Hastings branch at 11am on Monday 19 December, and at Asda at 11am on Tuesday 20 and again on Friday 23 December.
All support is very much appreciated – and you can be guaranteed all the money raised will be put to used wisely.
