Holding the buckets for a good cause

As recognition of the outstanding support Bankside has given to the homeless and disadvantaged of Leeds in supporting the work of St Aidan’s and St George’s Crypt, we were invited to supply collectors for a special lunchtime Christmas concert by the Boys of Durham Cathedral Choir – Azizah, Razna, Samina and Usman from Bankside ChoirCapture 3 did an outstanding job giving out programmes and holding buckets during the retiring collection, and managed to collect nearly £1500, as well as showing off Bankside smiles, friendliness and politeness to a large audience.

Just back from Sainsbury’s on the Headrow, where some of our choir have been carol-singing on behalf of St George’s Crypt.  Statistics – 34 songs, £179.65 raised, 17 exhausted children, 5 even more exhausted grown-ups…Thanks to Sainsbury’s, and especially their manager Graham, for asking us back and for their kind and enthusiastic support for us today.  See below for some of the pictures.
