Mainland choir raises £1k for Scilly Wildlife Trust
A mainland choir raised £1,000 for the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust on its second visit to the islands last week.
InTune, "a modern ladies choir" from Cornwall, performed three free events on Scilly, with a retiring collection to support the Trust.
They appeared at the Parish Church on St Mary's, followed by St Nicholas' Church on Tresco (above left) and On The Quay back on St Mary’s (right).
Choir Mistress Amy was accompanied by 42 other singers on this year's trip, which included a performance with local ladies choir Scilly Sirens.
Nikki Banfield from the Wildlife Trust wrote on social media: “Following the final performance of their 2019 Scilly Tour today, we are incredibly pleased to announce that InTune Choir have raised more than £1,000 for the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust!
"We would like to say a HUGE thank you to the entire choir, and Amy specifically, for their determination and dedication and we'd also like to thank everyone who attended one of the performances and put some money in the donation buckets.
"If you haven't heard them before Google them and check them out. If you wanted to be here but couldn't, you can still support them in supporting us and make a donation."
The group raised £850 for the Trust on their first visit last year after their leader became inspired by the charity's work.
