Donations from our ‘Lost in Music Concert’

At our last rehearsal before the summer break we were delighted to present the The Lily Mae Foundation with a cheque for £237.50 following our Summer concert ‘Lost in Music’ last month. A huge thank you again to all those who donated so generously on the day of the concert. We are very pleased to learn that the money raised will help to provide 3 families with a memory box following the loss of their baby.
