A message from one of our choir members, Tom Chalmers:

I had been looking for a choir for several years and had given up on finding the right one for me. Then when I heard Lisa from IRISS speaking about the new Social Services Choir, I instantly had a feeling that I had at last found what I had been looking for. This choir, with the more than able leadership of the wonderful duo Gregg and Matt, has been a revelation to me and each week we have created some beautiful sounds and shared many a giggle.

Everyone in the group is so friendly and I cannot wait for a Monday night to come around. Singing gives you peace of mind, is very empowering and I go home feeling energised. I am amazed at the number of songs we have polished off in these first 8 weeks and the choir is an important element of my continued well being. I am also to be involved in a community drumming group and volunteer for the RNIB, and now I feel so lucky that I can add the choir to my list, which completes my Golden Nugget Trilogy.
