The Trimley St Martin Primary School Choir were so good! Around 350 people were in the audience but the choir were unphased. They sang their hearts out! Comments from the other choirs and spectators were so complementary and it was a pleasure to take part in such a valuable charity event.
It was though, a long night! We all arrived at 6:30 for a sound check and quick run through before the main performance. We were on stage first when the event started at 7:30pm. The final performance of the night was the Sing Out Against Cancer Choir which included Mrs Matthews, Mrs Matthews' Mum and Mrs Barrell. The event finished at 10:15pm and although it was a long evening the children were so well behaved the whole evening. Again, we received a number of complements from spectators praising how well the children sat and watched considering it was so late.
A big thank you though to Mrs Crowe (Mrs Matthews' Mum) who put our names forward to bring along a school choir. We were the only primary school involved and it was an honour. She is vice president of the Felixstowe Cancer Research Charity and has worked hard along with the other members to pull this together. When we were initially asked, I had no hesitation in saying yes to this. Mrs Crowe has helped out the school at the summer fete, she has donated to our library and helped re organise the library and so this was our way of returning the favour. We were also so pleased to be involved because there is no doubt that we know of people who have been diagnosed and battled cancer or even gone through it themselves. We are pleased that we have helped the charity to raise £2800 on Friday to fund more research and hopefully to help increase the number of people surviving this.
