News: 2017 Christmas Carol Concert

Published

Congratulations to Rotarian Chris Lilley for organising and hosting our seventh Carol Concert which was held in The Dunes in Mablethorpe last night. So many people turned up the organisers were left scrambling for extra seats!

The Alford Silver Band filled the room with a warm and mellow sound that suits the Christmas songs and atmosphere perfectly. The Mablethorpe Primary Academy Choir sang so well Santa heard them and stopped by to hand out some presents!

The Sutton on Sea WI Choir, performing with the Somercotes Singers, lead the singing for the second half with plenty of audience participation too. The audience also endured, sorry enjoyed, solo performances by ‘volunteers’ Nigel Collins (our Club President), Tony Howard (Chairman of ELDC) and Councillor Bob Dawes.

The evening was a great success raising over £600 in ticket sales which was then boosted by a further £210 generously donated by the audience as they left.

Thanks go to the organisers, hosts, musicians, choirs, Santa and everyone who turned out making the event so enjoyable. We hope to see you all back next year!
