Three Choir Appeal Success as £1160.00 raised for Air Ambulance

Published on Wednesday 10 August 2022

Carlton, Sandiacre and Pye Hill & District Male Voice Choirs joined forces to raise money for the vital services provided by the Derbyshire, Leicester, Rutland, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance in a concert held on Saturday 30th July 2022, at St. Paul’s Church, Daybrook, Nottingham. The money raised will also be used to support the Children’s Air Ambulance nationally.


All three well known and long-standing choirs performed several of their diverse range of songs, representing all genres of music, from traditional male voice choir favourites to songs from the shows, gospel, pop and contemporary music – something for everyone! The choirs were led by their respective Musical Directors, Ian Watts, Stuart Graham and Linda Darnell. The concert ended in the choirs’ joining forces to both sensitively and powerfully perform classic male voice ‘anthems’, culminating in ‘American Trilogy’, accompanied by the impressive Ian Watts on the church organ, lifting the roof! All performances were enhanced by the wonderful acoustics of St. Pauls Church who also gave its facilities free to support the charity.

Entry to the concert was free to the public with voluntary donations collected by representatives of the Air Ambulance. The concert was deliberately organised not to restrict anyone from attending, irrespective of their means and recognising the financial pressure many people are experiencing at present, leaving it to individuals to give what they could afford, without any obligation. The fact that £1,160.00 was raised for the Air Ambulance without ticket sales is testament to the following of the combined choirs and the generosity of the public who filled the church to capacity.

Several ovations were received during the concert for all three choirs’ individual performances and a standing ovation from the audience was received at the end of concert.

All three choirs are constantly looking to recruit new members and you will receive a warm welcome if you wish to join any of the male voice choirs who took part in the concert. Further details are available on all choir websites.
