Singing Suppers are a firm favourite, they usually happen twice a year in December and June/July. These end of term gatherings involve an informal performance to family and friends, who can come along and see what we’ve been up to, a delicious bring and share supper and then an opportunity for everyone to join in a song or two!
Since its inception Coastal Voices has been invited to perform and support a number of local charities including Childline Cymru, St David’s Hospice, Ty Gobaith and Amnesty International. Coastal Voices are regular performers at Gwledd Conwy Feast.
Water Aid Sing for Water was co-founded in 2002 by Helen Chadwick and the Thames Festival to provide a spectacular concert as part of the Thames Festival programme, while raising money and awareness for the charity WaterAid www.wateraid.org/uk. Since then ‘Sing for Water’ events have been held by choirs and singers all over the UK, with Coastal Voices being no exception. As well as smaller donations from a variety of performances, we’ve organised two of our own big concert events for WaterAid raising £3,880 in 2006 and £4,500 in 2009! Then for our 10th Anniversary we raised another substantial sum taking our donations to WaterAid over the 10 years to more than £10,000!!
