The Bingham Carol Singers
Usually at this time of year, we at Bingham and District Choral Society are rehearsing for our Christmas Concert in Bingham Church, a landmark community event in our calendar. Like so many other delightful musical occasions, it has been obliterated by the pandemic.
Covid, however, was no match for the determination of eight members of our bass section to spread a little Christmas cheer among the rest of the choir by recording a video for our entertainment. The idea then evolved to include a fundraising element, similar to the collection for local charities that has become a feature of the annual Christmas Concert. Framework, a Nottingham-based charity offering shelter and support services to homeless people, has been a favourite cause for BDCS over the past several years and its work has become even more vital during the public health crisis of 2020.
We invite you to enjoy the video and make a donation to Framework via the choir. And so lock up the dog, pour yourself a stiff drink, watch the Bingham Carol Singers and try not to choke on your mince pie. Merry Christmas!
Please make a donation to Framework in the following way:
- By bank transfer (on-line banking) to: Account name: Bingham and District Choral Society, Sort Code: 30-90-89, Account Number: 35138968. Please put ‘Framework’ in the reference field, or
- By cheque, payable to Bingham & District Choral Society, and post it to The Treasurer, Hill House Cottage, Burgage Lane, Southwell, Nottingham. NG25 0ER.
