Choir raises £2,100 for Chiltern Centre

THE Aliquando chamber choir has presented £2,100 to the Chiltern Centre for disabled children in Henley.

THE Aliquando chamber choir has presented £2,100 to the Chiltern Centre for disabled children in Henley.

It raised the money with a charity concert at St Mary’s Church attended by about 300 people.

The 30 singers performed alongside concert pianist Anita D’Attellis and soloists Lucy Cox and Daniel Rudge. The money will go towards the upkeep of the centre off Greys Road, which costs £200,000 a year to run.

Paul Barrett, chairman of trustees for the centre, said: “We are ever so grateful that people carry out these sorts of fund-raising activities on our behalf. We would not be able to survive without their support.” Founded in 2004, the charity provides respite care for the families of 85 disabled children. It offers day and overnight care as well as home visits. It also runs youth groups, holiday schemes and an early years play group.

The concert was sponsored by Higgs Group, publisher of the Henley Standard.
