Great North Run

The Choir was delighted to sponsor Llion Davies for a £100 to take part in the 2015 Great North Run; it was Llion’s first attempt at such an event and we are happy to announce that Llion achieved his goal in a creditable time of 2hrs 27min 03 secs  for a first timer. He was running to raise funds for that worthy cause –  Cancer Research.

Llion is the son of Choir member Huw and  is studying at Bangor University.

DJ for the afternoon was Dr Jeff Jones of Pant-Blodau who was able to announce that he had completed the London Marathon and he thanked the choir for their donation of £100 towards the Helping Heart Charity of the British Heart Foundation .

bryneglwys choir

The choir enjoyed a lovely evening in Bryn Eglwys as the name suggests the Church stands on a little hillock and it was a perfect setting for the choir to perform. The money raised was earmarked for community events and the choir was grateful for the donation towards their funds. We had a wonderful supper afterwards and many in the choir complained of excess intake; many thanks to the ladies who are pictured below
