A special afternoon tea with the West Bridgford Liberty Singers raised £2,075.80 for the Footprints charity.
The event was organised by Lucie Gregory who has a long-standing and personal connection to the charity.
Footprints Conductive Education Centre is a Nottingham-based charity that supports babies and pre-school children with conditions such as cerebral palsy that cause motor disorders or motor development delay.
They also run projects to help children with Down’s syndrome improve their skills in all areas of early development, including motor skills and communication.
They work closely with both the children and their parents to encourage and motivate each child’s desire to achieve tasks.
At the same time, they give parents the knowledge, confidence, and strength they need to cope with their child’s disability and understand how they can help.
All their activities have a common goal – to help every child reach their full potential within a safe, fun, and supportive environment.
The afternoon tea with the choir saw around 40 members of the West Bridgford Liberty Singers give their time to come along and support the event.
Singing songs from across the decades, a fabulous sense of happiness and joy was created for the occasion.
Additionally, it gave the singers chance to showcase solos, duets and small group songs.
Singers also supported the event through making cakes and buying many raffle tickets.
The West Bridgford Liberty Singers are a community choir from the town and despite being in their first year, are already developing a strong reputation for the community aspect of group singing.
