The Lower Clarence Community Choir has for many years given financial support to charitable service organisations here in the Clarence Valley. On Wednesday November 4th, Mrs Connie de Dassel, the President of the Choir Committee, supported by Ms Anne Gray, the Secretary, were delighted to present to Mr Russ Holland, “Fundraising & Community Relations Officer” of the Westpac Helicopter Rescue Service, a cheque for $1500.
Mr Holland expressed his sincere thanks for the support of all the choir members and their generous donation. He further stated that the Westpac Helicopter Rescue Service provided a frequent service to the needs of the Clarence Valley community and that this donation would be well used in the support of the area.
Mrs de Dassel affirmed that the Lower Clarence Community Choir would continue into the future with its fundraising and support of charitable organisations and that this was a prime goal of the Choir. Support over the years to the Westpac Helicopter Rescue Service was always a popular choice of the membership of the Choir along with support given to the Maclean District Hospital through the Maclean and Lower Clarence Hospital Auxiliary.
Through concert performances, the support of the local community and donations from the membership of the Choir, the Lower Clarence Community Choir will continue to support charities which serve the people of the Clarence Valley.
The Secretary of the Choir, Anne Gray, said that while we have a membership of over 50 choristers from Maclean, Yamba and Grafton, new members would always be welcomed and encouraged.
