LGN Choir sings loud for the Hospice

01 July 2013

A local choir with singers from Lowton, Golborne and Newton-le-Willows has raised the roof with a fabulous donation of over £1,200 for the Hospice.

The LGN Choir established a few years ago by keen singer and Hospice volunteer Olwyn Rowlinson now has over 80 members who meet regularly to practise and sing their hearts out. Over the past year they have sung at a number of events across the Borough and have raised over £1,200 for the Hospice.

Dr Alan Baron, Hospice Chief Executive went along recently (not to sing but to collect the cheque). He said, "My wife, Elaine and I were delighted to be invited but we were both truly amazed when we heard the choir sing. The standard was fantastic. There was a wonderful community feel to the group with everyone striving to do their best but with plenty of laughter as well. Olwyn's enthusiasm as she conducted shone through. She is a real inspiration. This is what true community spirit is all about and it is through the support of wonderful, dedicated groups such as the LGN Choir that the Hospice can continue to provide its broad range of essential services to local people."
