A Ludlow choir has come up with a recipe for success, combining musical classics and home-made cake for a community concert that’s supporting Hope House children’s hospice.

Rockspring Community Choir are performing a Musical Concert on Saturday 1st June at The Methodist Church, Ludlow at 7.30pm. With many talented bakers among the singers, the audience can expect show tunes and sponge cake, as well as pop classics and pastries.

Money raised from ticket and cakes sales will provide care and support for children with life-threatening conditions and their families.

Event organiser Christine Perkins said the choir were looking forward to ‘a good old sing’.

She said: “We’re a choir for people who simply love to sing. You don’t have to read music or face an audition, we’re an inclusive and social choir where everyone’s welcome.

“Ticket for the concert are £7.50, and under 16s are free. We thought we could boost fundraising in another way. We’ll have just missed Hope House’s official Eat Cake Week, but we all agreed that any time is right for cake!”

“The church acoustics are lovely and, as well as some amazing singers, we’re lucky to boast some skilled bakers too.”

Area fundraiser Dawn Ball said: “We’re very grateful to Rockspring Choir for choosing to support Hope House. They’ve been creative in their fundraising, thinking of ways to boost donations through cake sales.

“Fundraising events such as this are vital to children and families who rely on the support that Hope House offers, which includes experts care and counselling services.”

The Choir meets at Ludlow Elim Church each Wednesday, from 7pm to 8.45pm. New members are always welcome to go along.
