Our Christmas concert in 2018 supported 2 charities. This week members of the choir presented a cheque for £347 to the independent Basingstoke Charity, YPI, which supports young people aged 11 to 25 and their families by offering counselling and mentoring. In addition, a bucket collection on the evening raised just over £50.

In 2018 1000 individuals in this area received support. At a time when council contributions to such charities are being reduced, we are proud to have funded a course of counselling for 2 young people with the money raised at our Christmas concert
