Ill.Kt. Frank Johnston, P.G.Pref. (West Yorkshire), was delighted to be able to have been able to present a cheque for £2,500 to the Barnsley Youth Choir at the Horizon Community College, Barnsley on Saturday, 10 August 2019. The Choir were busy performing a final pre-tour rehearsal and fund raising concert in preparation for the senior senior section of the choir going to South Africa for a very intense working tour this month, taking some 80 young people for a life changing experience.
Mat Wright, a founder and the Artistic Director of this very successful choir, received the donation with most grateful thanks and a prolonged applause by the young singers.
