Each year the members of Chester Bach Singers nominate a charity local to the Chester area to support throughout the season. We support the nominated charity through retiring collections, especially at our Carol Concerts around Christmas, but also through other fundraising events including sponsored walks, cake bakes, bring and buy sales, and many others.
The nominated good cause for the 2017/18 season is:
Chester Aid to the Homeless (CATH) was founded by a team of volunteers in 1972 to provide help and support to Chester’s homeless community. The charity has developed over four decades to become a leading homeless charity in the city of Chester providing a wide range of services.
CATH remains the key Chester City Centre charity for homeless people, offering support, encouragement and a safety net to those in crisis. The Harold Tomlins Centre is open to all in need of help and support.
Previous nominated charities have included:
2016/17 Alzheimer’s Society Singing for the Brain
2015/16 Neuro Therapy Centre Choir – Movers ‘n’ Shakers
2014/15 Wirral Hospice St John’s
2013/14 Hospice of the Good Shepherd
