Year 6 Fundraising Concert
In May, a fundraising concert was held by the Year 6 pupils of Poringland Primary School to raise money for The Nook. The evening was one to be remembered, although there was a shortage of light at the beginning due to a power cut. Luckily, the electricity came on in time to welcome the fabulous Year 4 Recorder Group. They played a short selection of pieces before we were joined by the Carton Colville Handbell Ringers. Children helped with percussive instruments for a couple of songs. Lastly, the Year 6 performed a selection of songs that had been learnt for the recent CASMA concert. During the interval a raffle was held and thanks to those who donated delicious refreshments. We raised an amazing £308.87!
Junior Choir Singing for The Nook
On Saturday 15thJune, 18 members of Junior Choir sang at the Community Centre. The Nook Friends’ Group invited us to sing, along with an adult group called Norwich Harmony. They were a barbershop choir and they were amazing! They were an ‘a capella’ choir, which means they sang with no instruments. They set a good example for us:
- They were loud and clear.
- They all wore the same clothes and shoes.
- They were always positive and happy.
We performed our 3 songs before the interval and the audience liked watching our clapping games.
For snack, there was drink, fruit and ICE CREAM!
After the interval, some men sang with the ladies, who had changed into beautiful blue dresses.
Lastly the raffle was drawn, and surprisingly lots of the choir members won prizes!
Judith, from the Friends’ Group, thanked us before announcing that The Nook is nearly, nearly ready.
For a finale, Norwich Harmony sang……… BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY by Queen. We had a great time and we could be part of the adult choir when we are older.
The evening raised a fantastic £1,176.
