To help towards the cost of entering our first competition as a Ladies Barbershop Chorus in Harrogate this year, we decided to play on the strengths of our members and raise some funds by taking on the Charities Table at the local hospital, the BGH. This was supported well by our chorus baking a mountain of delights and the visiting public and staff of the BGH clearing the table as we sold pretty much everything by the end of the afternoon, making a very welcome sum of £309.
We are a busy group of singers! One Acchord members have been pulling out all the stops to raise funds in support of us entering the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS) Competition at Harrogate in October this year. It is an expensive business with costumes, music, travel and accommodation, and extra coaching sessions all to be paid for from our funds. So we have been organising various events to raise funds and also spread the word about our chorus. Rec
