The Uckfield Singers’ Summer Concert, held at the Civic Centre on Saturday July 20th, was a bittersweet affair, as it was the first and last summer concert with Musical Director Monica Das.
Work commitments mean she will no longer be able to lead the choir, and they will be looking for a new M.D in the autumn.
Monica said how much she had enjoyed her time with the choir and how they had made her feel very welcome. Nick Poole, Chairman of the Singers, paid tribute to Monica and her contribution to the choir’s development. She will be missed.
On the evening the proceeds from the raffle which amounted to £360.00 and Nick Poole, Chairman of the Uckfield Singers presented the cheque to Michelle Hulse of The Children’s Respite Trust, a charity that provides respite for disabled children and support for their families throughout East Sussex.
