The Seaview choir provides the carol concert finale.

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.

This Saturday’s Winter Concert is no exception, writes Chris Cormack.
