A Come and Sing day in Fakenham raised £3,700 for the Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House. Over 200 singers took part under the direction of Fakenham Choral Society’s Janet Kelsey in rehearsing Faure’s Requiem.
The complete composition was sung to a packed audience in the parish church at the conclusion of the day with pianist James Laird as the accompanist. A cheque was presented to Rebekah Mills from Tapping House prior to the Society’s performance of Bach’s Magnificat and Mozart’s Requiem in the parish church a week later.
n Dobbies Garden Centre in Lynn has named the Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House, as its charity partner for 2015.
Victoria Emden, who is community champion for Dobbies Lynn store, said she was confident customers would support such a worthy good cause. Tapping House was chosen after community members were asked to nominate charities, which were then invited to apply for the partnership, with other charities applying directly.
