This Christmas, we’re thrilled to have spread some festive joy and collaborated with Daventry Choral Society on our Christmas e-card.
Our specially-made digital card features the choir’s wonderful rendition of We Wish You A Merry Christmas, and in return we have donated £150 to help support them through the Coronavirus pandemic.
Daventry Choral Society is a well-known enthusiastic and friendly local choir, consisting of 90 experienced and novice singers. They enjoy sharing their musical talent with the local community and usually perform three concerts a year, and are helped to develop their skills in regular rehearsals and workshops led by trained musicians.
Due to the current pandemic, all of their performances this year were cancelled and the choir have been unable to meet and practise together in-person.
Kerry Jones, Sales Director at Mulberry Homes, said: “We’ve loved working with Daventry Choral Society this Christmas, and are very proud to have donated to them as a thank you for providing such lovely music.
“At Mulberry Homes, we are committed to supporting, and forging partnerships with, the local communities in which we operate. We hope these funds will offer a helping hand to the choir during this difficult time and bring some festive cheer.”
Noo Jarvill, Trustee of Daventry Choral Society, said: “We really appreciate Mulberry Homes’ desire to not only support a local organisation but also to promote our music. Our choral society is full of members who love to sing, and we haven’t been able to do that for months now, so it has been a wonderful opportunity to be able to spread some Daventry Choral Society Christmas cheer by being part of this festive e-card!
“As soon as government guidelines allow and we are able to meet again, we shall arrange some concerts to entertain our local audience. We look forward to playing our part in reviving the performing arts and the wonderful British tradition of choral music. Many thanks to Mulberry Homes for their donation to our society – we are most grateful.”
