Sounds Like Fun Choir at Christchurch Library for CLAC 2023

Day 5 of our Advent Calendar, raising money for Parkinson’s Disease, was held in Christchurch Library. We were made so welcome by the library team and volunteers. The venue was superb and they kindly provided refreshments, tea, coffee, mince pies and chocolate biscuits!

Jane Lewis and her fabulous choir “Sounds Like Fun” lived up to their name. The music was joyful, festive and fun with a rich variety of compositions from Joy to the World to a jazzy Jingle Bells.

The raffle prizes were kindly donated by Nusara Thai, Pizza Baracca and Stewart’s Garden Centre.


Watch the choir singing ‘Joy to the World’:

We have an Outing, a Summer party, and a Christmas Lunch and 4 Holidays have been enjoyed. We also provide weekly Tai Chi classes whom our members say are very beneficial.
