The Island and Make It York presents ChoirFest

A collaborative project between The Island and Make It York, we’re delighted to announce that we’ll be hosting a ChoirFest outside the Mansion House on St. Helen’s Square on Saturday 8 December, 12noon – 4pm.

Bringing together four of York’s finest choirs, the event will showcase a wide range of Christmas and popular music tunes which will get you, your family and friends into the festive spirit. Choirs performing at the event, include the In Harmony Ladies’ Choir, Stamford Bridge Singers, Acomb Community Choir and ending the event on a high will be Lucy’s Pop Choir.

The event is free of charge, however, there will be a collection bucket, so people can make a donation towards our worthy cause if they wish to do so. The donations generated from the event will go towards our one to one mentoring programme which is and hugely successful but oversubscribed service here at The Island.

Our one to one mentoring programme has a high success rate in transforming the lives of children living in York. The programme lasts one year and provides the mentees with the opportunity to build confidence, self-esteem and develop coping mechanisms so that they can take positive steps forward in their lives.

We hope you’ll get involved in the festivities by coming along to show your support. If you would like to volunteer at the ChoirFest, then please get in touch with us via email enquiries@theislandyork.org.
