Children’s Hospice South West – Precious Lives Appeal
The Trelawny Singers at the Eden Project
On the Saturday 11th September 2010, the Trelawny SIngers sang at the Eden Project to help raise money for the Caron Keating Foundation and the Children’s Hospice South West’s Precious Lives Appeal. The Concert which they organized featured the Cornwall Boys’ Choir conducted by Angela Renshaw, Gloria Hunniford and BBC Radio Cornwall’s Martin Baille.
In publicizing the event Geoff James of the Trelawny Singers was quoted in local papers saying that,
“This is new territory for us, usually concerts are organised for us not by us, so in that respect it is daunting. We sing for two reasons, primarily because we love it, paramount to that we are totally committed to raising funds for Children’s Hospice South West and have been for many years. We are so excited about this concert; it’s a huge event for us. We can guarantee the audience first class entertainment with our own close harmony singing and from our guests the Cornwall Boys’ Choir. It’s not every day we get to meet a star personality like Gloria Hunniford. I’m sure everyone is looking forward to it, we certainly are. We hope the public will support the event and fill every seat so that we make lots of money for the two very worthwhile charities.”
The event was a massive success and raised in excess of £3000 for the two Charities.
