We have been thrilled by the support from individuals in the Cathedral Parish and beyond who have felt able to contribute to the Tour Fund in order to help cover the costs of taking our Youth Choir members on the tour. Particular thanks to Mary Mulvenney for organising a series of fundraising cake sales, and to Valerie Black for the
The Music Department have been raising money by putting on a range of performances, from Carolling in December through to the recent Youth Choir performance on Mothering Sunday. We have an array of events planned over the coming months to help raise more funds for the trip. We hope you will be able to come along to these and enjoy some glorious music, whilst also supporting our young people.
