HALIFAX CHAMBER CHOIR

NEWS

Halifax Chamber Choir is giving a concert in Holy Trinity and St.Jude's Church, Free School Lane, Halifax on Saturday 2nd February in aid of two local charities:

Yorkshire Air Ambulance

 

It may surprise you to know that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance is a charity which relies on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across Yorkshire.

As a charity it only receives help through secondment of paramedics from the NHS, through Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust. To keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances in the air it needs to raise £12,000 per day, equivalent to £4.4 million per year.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance serves a population of approximately 5 million people across 4 million acres.

Two Air Ambulances operate from The Nostell Priory Estate

near Wakefield and RAF Topcliffe near Thirsk, and together both Air Ambulances cover the whole of the region.

Music For The Many

 

is a new charity, offering equal opportunities in music education to the children of Todmorden.

The charity recognizes that every child should have the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument or sing if they want to, regardless of their social or economic background.

However, without access to instruments or professional tuition, many children in Todmorden will miss out on this opportunity.

Music for the Many hopes to bridge this gap by offering donated and reconditioned instruments and free professional tuition to children at our local primary and high schools and to those who are home educated. The charity covers the expense of tuition and instrument maintenance, removing any financial obstacles to participation in the scheme.
