Despite the challenges thrown at ECMVC and Sonara Singers on the evening of Friday 16 December – the M1 was closed for several hours making the journey to Repton an absolute nightmare, necessitating a concert start time delayed by 45 minutes – the Rainbows Christmas Celebration was a superb effort. The choir of Repton Primary School played a major part in the proceedings and charmed the capacity audience at St Wystan’s Church.
The following Tuesday, ECMVC continued the fund-raising effort by singing for late-night shoppers at the Intu Centre in Derby, with Sonara Singers following a couple of days later.
Between them, the choirs have raised well over £3,000 for Rainbows over the three events. What a fantastic result.
