Christmas at the Queen's – Over £2K Raised for Charity!

1---News-Article-Image---Christmas-Carols
Pinney Talfourd once again teamed up with Queen's Theatre Hornchurch and Dawn Chorus for a Christmas concert and raised over £2,000 for charity!

Last Friday saw Pinney Talfourd and Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch open the doors for their annual charity Christmas carol concert, ‘Christmas at the Queen’s’ – a lively and festive singalong event for the whole community.

The fantastic local choir Dawn Chorus, led by Paul Rhodes, joined us to please the crowd with a series of upbeat Christmas songs including “Let It Snow” and “Merry Christmas Everyone” before enjoying tea and mince pies with the Mayor of Havering, Cllr Linda Van Den Hende.

This year also saw the Year 5 and 6 Choir of Benhurst Primary School join in on the festivities, belting out a number of merry songs which got the entire audience up on their feet and singing along.

This was a free event, but the charity raffle and generous donations from members of the community raised an incredible £2,284.32 in aid of the Queen's Theatre charitable trust and Pinney Talfourd’s own charity of the year, SNAP (Special Needs and Parents). Local businesses rallied to support the event by donating some fabulous prizes, ranging from champagne, restaurant vouchers, two tickets to see Mariah Carey in concert and even a luxury £500 Harrods Christmas hamper! Funds raised are divided equally between the two charities.

This event has attracted a full house every year, and this year was no different. Local businesses, Councillors and members of the local community checked in for this festive celebration.

Teas, coffees and mince pies were on offer courtesy of Pinney Talfourd after the event to refresh those vocal chords, providing an opportunity to meet new faces and make new friends. Thank you as always to the Queen's Theatre Club volunteers who helped to serve refreshments.
