Jubilee Proms raises Profile of Quarriers South West Services
The Proms Celebration of British Music at Lackham House, Lacock on Sunday 24th June was a fitting climax to the recent profile raising events for Quarrier’s South West England services. The concert featured a “Quire” of 22 volunteer singers, conducted by Bath Regional Office Administrator, Ruth McKibbin. Local professional soloists Philip Styles (tenor), Nick Malcolm (trumpet) and Adam Biggs (Piano) led the “Quire" in music by Purcell, Handel, Britten, Tippett and Jenkins.
Glorious sunshine on the day raised the spirits of all those who enjoyed picnicking in the beautiful gardens of Lackham House while they listened to the concert of songs from the British Isles. Enthusiastic Quarriers staff, some of the young people supported by Quarriers, musicians and supporters sang with gusto the patriotic songs I vow to thee my country and Jerusalem at the conclusion of the concert.
Chris Chart, Service Manager for Quarriers, said, “It was a real family day with young and old coming together to enjoy the sunshine, songs and the spectacular location of Lackham House. All the performers and volunteer singers provided a fantastic concert and much needed funds for our work with local disabled children.”
Congratulations! The event raised £124.75 which will be used to provide holidays for some of the children supported by Quarriers. If you would like to know more about the work of Quarriers in South West England, please contact Ruth McKibbin on 01225 339913.
