Laurence Singers treasurer, Valerie Jones, hands over a cheque for £500 to Rev Rob Wardle from the Macclesfield-based charity, Cre8.
The money will help boost the charity’s work supporting young people and their families living on the area’s Moss Rose estate. Now celebrating its tenth anniversary, Cre8 provides a series of learning projects and other activities to encourage young people to fulfil their potential and get into employment.
‘At Cre8, our work is all about empowering young people and adults to make good things happen both for themselves and their neighbourhood,’ said Rev Wardle. ‘We believe that everybody has something to contribute to the community, whatever their ability. We are very grateful to the Laurence Singers for their support.’
In the past 12 months the Laurence Singers have raised a total of £1,400, through concerts and ticket sales, in aid of local and national charities.
Said choir director, Cliff Crewe: ‘As part of the local community, we are delighted to have the opportunity to support deserving causes, whilst enjoying our singing!’
