the bostock singers, winning choir

Local choirs raised the roof of the Crewe Lyceum on Saturday when they battled it out for the title of ‘Last Choir Standing’. More than two hundred participants took part, performing for a live audience and panel of judges which included St Luke’s Hospice CEO Andrea Ladeira.

The audience were treated to a musical spectacular with performances ranging from traditional African music to songs written by the Beatles and Snow Patrol. At the end of the night, votes from the audience resulted in The Bostock Singers (pictured) from Hartford being crowned winners. The choir was presented with a trophy and a cheque for £100, which they very kindly donated back to the Hospice. Second place was awarded to the The Winsford Educational Partnerships Staff Choir and third to The Nightingales from Leighton Hospital.

In an evening that was a resounding success, over £6,000 was raised for St Luke’s Hospice, which will go towards providing vital care to the community of mid and south Cheshire.

“What a brilliant evening!” said Catherine Moore, Senior Event Fundraiser at St Luke’s Hospice.  The standard of performances was exceptional and I didn’t envy the audience members having to pick a winning choir.  The event not only raised the roof at the Lyceum, it also raised a fantastic amount of money for the charity”.

St Luke’s needs to raise £8,600 a day to provide vital care and support to patients. If you are interested in other St Luke’s events, please visit www.stlukes-hospice.co.uk/event/
