STEPHEN Metcalfe, local MP for South Basildon and East Thurrock, attended a dinner on Saturday in celebration of Thurrock Male Voice Choir’s 75th Anniversary.
The Choir, now around 40 strong, was formed in 1938 and has been going strong ever since.
Mr Metcalfe commented: “I was delighted to be able to support the choir at their 75 anniversary celebration. It is a fantastic achievement to reach this milestone and I hope that there will be many more to come in the future!”
The choir gave a special performance at the dinner which is one of many throughout the year. Through their performances over the years the choir have raised over £100,000 for local and national charities.
Mr Metcalfe added: “As well as being dedicated to first rate performances, the choir have shown great dedication in raising money for good causes. I am sure that every charity who has benefited from their superb singing is extremely grateful and I would like to thank the choir for their continued work in this area.”
The choir meet in Grays Methodist Church Hall on Monday evenings at 7:30pm. If you are interested in joining them, go along and see if you would like to become a member. Further information can be found here: http://www.thurrockmalevoicechoir.co.uk
