The Gwalia Ladies support the choir in many ways and the men are always very appreciative of all their work

Annual Ladies Charity Christmas Concert 2015 

Last year the Annual Ladies Charity Christmas Concert was held on Tuesday 8th December in the Swansea Scout & Guide Headquarters in Brynmill.  Every year the ladies support a different charity, this year it was the Swansea Salvation Army.  Tickets were sold to partners and supporters, a buffet and a glass of wine were included in the price.  Choir members had a free glass of wine or beer after they had finished their singing,  the choir members call this a 'Sing for your supper event'. 

The Choir sang a selection of pieces for the first half and then there was a short talk from
Major Stephen Westwood about the Swansea Salvation Army.  After the choir had sung the second half of their concert  an excellent buffet wes served by the ladies to the guests and the choir.  After the buffet two wonderful Christmas Hampers and lots of other prizes were raffled.  A collection was made and 300 was donated to Stephen for the Salvation Army Christmas Lunch fund.  The evening finished with everyone joining in with Christmas carols and the highlight, as usual, was the 'Twelve Days of Christmas' when groups from the audience had to stand to sing the different verses.  As well as the donation to the Salvation Army the evening made over 540 profit for the choir fund.

A great evening was had by all.  Well done all those who worked so hard to make this possible.
