The Christopher Singers, a Sutton-based community theatre group whose performances raise donations for charitable institutions has received a generous donation from housebuilder, Barratt London. The developer is behind the New Mill Quarter development on Hackbridge Road in nearby Wallington.
Barratt London’s Community Fund sees the housebuilder donate £1,000 per month to a local charity or organisation working to improve the quality of life for those living in the local area. The recent donation to The Christopher Singers will support their upcoming performances and promotional materials, allowing the community group to continue their charitable work in Sutton. To date, The Christopher Singers has raised over £50,000 for a range of causes, such as the Oak Centre for Children and Young People at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton.
Pam Reardon, Sales Director for Barratt East London, comments: “We are delighted that we can help support The Christopher Singers in their exciting performances and charitable endeavours. As the country’s largest housebuilder, we are committed to creating a positive legacy. We want to lead the industry not just in the quality of the homes and developments we build, but also in our work with charities and good causes.”
Billie Smith, Publicity Officer for The Christopher Singers, comments: “We would like to thank Barratt London for its generosity in supporting our work. We run two to three performances a year, all of which raise money for charitable causes. Our aim is to bring the local community together through a love of singing.”
The Christopher Singers was formed by John Steel in 1991 with the sole aim of promoting concerts for the benefit of charitable organisations, whilst also providing people with the opportunity to fulfil their dreams of singing to live audiences. The group may also be booked for fundraising events and concerts. More details can be found at www.thechristophersingers.com.
