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.
Recently we held both a Pop-up Shop in Selkirk and a Carboot Sale at Ancrum, adding well over £550 to our Harrogate competition fund. We are hugely grateful to all who supported us with these events. We plan a few more events to keep up our fundraising efforts but we also need to focus on improving our singing and performing skills so we are competition ready for October.
