Choir raises voices for good causes
A Hospice service which helps support children and young people coping with bereavement has benefited after a choir raised their voices to help good causes.
The Hospice has been given a funding boost of £1,650 after Discord, a wellbeing choir, presented a cheque to the charity after their performance at Park Alive, which took place in Diss on Saturday, 12 August.
The choir has asked that the money raised be used to benefit the Hospice’s Nicky’s Way programme .
Nicky’s Way is a six-week programme which gives children and young people the chance to meet others in the same situation, allowing them to share their worries, fears, hopes and feelings and ask questions.
The groups are run by staff and trained volunteers from the hospice’s Family Support Team and take place at the Hospice building or in the community.
Nicky’s Way is open to all young people living in west Suffolk or Thetford who have been bereaved, whether connected to the Hospice or not.
Discord, which was started in January 2011 at Diss Methodist Church, also donated funds to Great Ormond Street Hospital and Nelson’s Journey.
