Reader letter: Sing for William

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people who supported Ramsey Choral Society’s

“Come and Sing for William” event which was held in Wisbech at the end of April.

“Come and Sing for William” was held to support our Musical Director, William Missin and his family, after he suffered severe cerebral haemorrhage in January 2012.

Nearly 100 singers took part in the event singing Vivaldi’s Gloria and choruses from Handel’s Messiah during an afternoon’s workshop and were then joined by an audience for an evening performance. We were delighted that William himself was able to come to the performance along with many members of his close family.

Singers and audience raised a magnificent total of £2,000 through donations which will be used to help William’s recovery at home more manageable.

Thank you once again to all those people who supported this event.

Jacqueline Southwell (Chair of Ramsey Choral Society)
