Musicality concerts raise �700 for Sidmouth Lions
Sidmouth’s Sidholme concerts raise funds for Lions Club charity activities
NEARLY �700 was raised at two Christmas concerts organised by Sidmouth Lions.
Four local singers and three musicians, collectively known as Musicality, performed at Sidholme on two evenings before Christmas free of charge to help the Lions Clubs’ charity activities.
Popular soprano Val Howels, together with Catherine Moore, Joe McNulty, Wally Cotgrave and musical director/keyboard player Dorothy Worthington, offered a selection of Christmas songs, poems and carols, with musical pieces performed by Ruth James, violin and Jane Hannah, flute. Wally was narrator and MC.
Lions’ president, Chris Rignall, thanked the performers and said: “The Lions were grateful to members of the public who supported and hopefully thoroughly enjoyed the concerts.”
