Choir donate to brain injury charity

Proceeds from a concert staged by the Shiplake Community Choir have been donated to a brain injury charity. Director Louise Rapple presented a cheque for £1,172 to Wendy Carlson, general manager of Headway in Henley, at Shiplake College. The money was raised by the choir’s first solo concert at the Christ Church Centre in Henley in June in front of 200 people. The choir performed songs by Queen, Abba and Eric Clapton, among others. The choristors chose to donate the money from ticket sales to Headway because the brother-in-law of a member was helped by the charity’s outreach service. Miss Carlson said: “This kind of thing is brilliant for us. One of the reasons why we stayed in Henley and not move to Reading was because of the kindness of people here.” Pictured are choir director Louise Rapple, left, with Wendy Carlson and members of the choi
