Today, 12 brave volunteers took the plunge for the NW Stroke choir!
A lot of things have had to change over the past month, due to the worldwide spread of the coronavirus. It's been a very unsettling time for everyone. Of course, it meant that our weekly choir rehearsals had to stop.
Or so we thought...
On Monday 30 September, the choir visited Tameside Hospital to sing to staff and patients on Ward 45. The performance was also attended by His Worshipful the Civic Mayor of Tameside Leigh Drennen and his consort Cory James.
On Monday, 8 July 2019, the choir visited Wythenshawe Hospital to perform to patients, staff and families on their Stroke Ward.
The choir really enjoyed performing at Manchester Royal Infirmary's Stroke Ward on Monday 17 June.
We recieved a warm welcome from all patients, carers and staff, and were very pleased to see plenty of audience participation!
Well done to our fabulous representatives; Joyce, Jane, Mark, Paul and Jane who made our pitch for funding for the choir at Bramhall and Woodford Rotary Dragons Den on Wednesday 13 March.
The choir were honoured to show their appreciation of our wonderful organiser Joyce Booth, as she retired from her post in Tameside.
On Sunday 19 May, The NW Community Stroke Choir joined forces with The Christie Rhythm of Life Choir to give a joint performance at the Bramhall and Woodford Rotary Duck Race Fundraiser.
After opening the national Life After Stroke Awards in London last November, it was wonderful to also be given the opportunity to open our very own regional North West Life After Stroke Awards in AJ Bell Stadium, Salford.
