Sponsored Sing Day
Saturday 20 April 2013
Venue: Samworth Academy
Cantamus Girls Choir is totally self funded and non profit making and as such has started a massive fund raising campaign to raise sufficient funds to take: 42 Main Choir girls to Austria on July 14th 2013;and the Training Choir to compete at the Llangollen Eisteddfod on July 10th 2013. The Sponsored Sing Event is the largest fund raising event for the choir and the aim of the day was to raise £2,000.
The day started at 8.00am where a group of volunteers came in early
to start with the food preparation of the day. The menu for the
Breakfast: Full English Breakfast; Toast; Sausage or Bacon cobs
Lunch: Jacket Potatoes including various fillings; Quiche; Sandwiches; Home made Soup; all served with salad
Afternoon Tea: Tea and cakes
All staff of Cantamus and the members of the Cantamus Committee are grateful for the parents and friends who volunteered to help throughout the day, particularly to Mrs Bev Ward who organised and coordinated the whole day. Bev ensured that there were enough volunteers to ensure that all duties/stalls/food stations were covered at all times. Without the help and support of Bev, all the volunteers and of course everyone who came to support the choir, this event would not have been as successful as it was.
We raised an amazing amount of money from all your efforts in the dining area and entrance halls as well as the contribution of gifts from parents and friends gave to enable Alison Rodger to make up some wonderful Hampers. Donations from local companies as well as parents and friends also helped supply the Tombola stall with a wide range of prizes to suit all age groups.
One of the winning Raffle Prizes was a beautiful Hot Diamond necklace that was very generously donated by Chapelle Jewellery. Other local companies who donated prizes were: Tesco (Chesterfield Road) donated £10 gift voucher; Chapelle Jewellery donated £10 voucher; Boots of Nottingham donated gift sets and toiletries.
Samworth Academy gave their permission for Cantamus to use 4 stationary bikes to Cycle to Graz. Elliot Mather Solicitors agreed to donate £250 if the 845 miles to Graz was achieved during the day. Girls, parents, family and friends were encouraged to use the bikes to help us achieve this and they did!
