Emily's Bishop running the London Marathon

Our Soprano and friend Emily Bishop is running the London Marathon on 24th April 2016 on behalf of the charity JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).

Emily has run many miles including half marathons as well as held many fundrasing campaings on behalf of JDRF, but this is her FIRST full marathon. JDRF are working hard to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes which would make a vast difference to many.

Katrina's sailing adventure

Katrina says:

I have been a happily singing member of the Questor’s Choir since January 2013 and it has given me great joy. However, in August my partner Andy and I step on board a 70 foot racing yacht, with 20 other amateurs and one professional skipper to race against 11 other yachts: challenging our limits to raise money for the Motor Neurone Association in memory of our dear friend Clare who died of MND in 2013. Clare’s partner Jon died of cancer 18 months before her, so after 38 years together, they each died of insidious, progressive diseases, both aged 58.

How to be a model choir member...

1. Pay your membership fee at the stipulated time (see below).

2. Make sure you arrive in time to start singing at 8 pm, allowing for all “preliminaries” and settling in.

3. On arrival, tick the attendance register against your name and under the appropriate date.

4. At the same time, please check for and collect any new music or other paperwork that you do not already have.

5. Indicate known, unavoidable absences by putting a cross under the appropriate date on the Register.
