Choirs Raise Money for RNLI

Published on Thursday 24 November 2022

Three locally based choirs recently performed a concert at David Nieper Academy to raise funds for the RNLI


Alfreton Male Voice, Treble Clef Ladies and the DNA group of students from the Academy entertained over 200 people to raise £1065. 

Organisers, Alfreton Male Voice Choirs’ songs included Bohemian Rhapsody and What a Wonderful World whilst Treble Clef songs included the beautiful C13th sing Panis Angelicus or ‘bread of angels’. The audience were in raptures to discover Treble Clef conductor Charlotte Pell (now Harrison) was to be married five days later and the concert included songs Treble Clef were to sing during the wedding including ‘Never Enough for Me’ from The Greatest Showman.

TheAcademy students singing as ‘DNA’ wowed the audience with songs including Hakuna Matata from Lion King and ‘Welcome to the Rock’ from Come From Away, really showing the next generation of choirs is in very good hands! (Young people safety precluded photography) 

Chairman of Alfreton Male Voice Choir, Mick Mullarkey said, “It was a very special and wonderful evening as three Alfreton choirs entertained and made music to raise money for an important charity, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.” 

After the interval the Choirs were joined by the Sagalouts (four Alfreton Choir Guys) dressed as sailors who performed two sea shanties including  ‘Sloop John B’ with the audience raising to the challenging participation with the  repetitive “HUH.”

The sea shanties were a fine introduction to the Chairman of the Derbyshire RNLI Fundraising Group, Will Stanier, who was present for the concert and spoke to the audience thanking all the choirs and audience for their generosity, noting the majority of lives saved by the RNLI are inlanders including residents of Amber Valley. 

A rousing finale saw the three choirs joining together singing, ‘You Raise Me Up’ and the final number ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ leaving everyone going home with a song in their hearts and the RNLI £1065 better off.
