As Christmas approaches we are conscious of the fact that due to Covid 19 we have not been able to raise money for charity through our concerts as all our concerts had to be cancelled. We always try to support locally and despite restrictions, we intend to do so this year.
Basingstoke Ladies' Choir chose Sebastian's Action Trust for their Charity for 2020. As we cannot sing for them we have set up a Just Giving page to raise funds for them.
We are also supporting the Tesco Chineham Gift Appeal who distribute gifts at Christmas, through Children's services, to children most in need. We had hoped to sing carols there this year. Maybe next!
This time of year can be quite cold and we all wrap up warm or hurry back to our warm homes. But there are some people who are desperate for some warm clothing throughout the winter months. Through one of our members we are able to donate Coats4Calais. To see how you might be able to help, read the information about them on this page.
Have you ever been really, really, hungry? Sadly there are many families and individuals who do not have enough money to buy sufficient food. Several members of the choir are involved with Foodbank so as a choir we are supporting this charity too.

If you would like to join us in supporting any of our charities, please read the information on them further down this page.

We wish you all a Happy and Healthy Christmas. We look forward to being able to sing and perform together in 2021
