Men of all ages are invited to come and give singing in a try in this fun and interactive afternoon, hosted by the choir and led by our superb Musical Director Martin Rendle. Last years event was great fun and a great success, leading to a number of guys taking the plunge and going on to join the choir. Could this year be your turn?

Singing is a great hobby on all levels. At the workshop we’ll also be looking at all the positive things that you can gain by singing within a group, so do come along and Sing Your Heart Out, make new friends and help us to continue to raise funds, through our performances, for local and national charities

The Royal National Institute for Deaf People

RNID, the charity supporting people who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus are looking for volunteers to support our vital work across the UK.

Last year, our volunteers gave more than 9,000 hours of their time to support people in their communities with practical information and essential hearing aid care. But with one in five adults in the UK being deaf or having hearing loss or tinnitus there is much more to do to make sure everyone in the UK gets support

Volunteering for RNID could involve providing information to local organisations and community groups, helping people get the most out of their hearing aids, or giving a friendly welcome to everyone who passes through the door at one of our support sessions.

Many of our volunteers have hearing loss themselves or in their family, and volunteering with us is a great way to meet new people, gain new skills and experience, try something new and help people in your community.
