We are the Margaret Duckworth Singers; a mixed choir who take our name from our founder and Musical Director, Margaret Duckworth.
Most of our members come from the Dearne Valley but we also have members who are past and present students of Miss Duckworth from the wider Yorkshire area. We have been pleased to welcome new members into the choir which now total 40 and rehearse in St. Johnís Methodist Church, Swinton.
The main aim of our choir is to to make music together (something that we all enjoy) and from this, raise money for local groups and organisations. Up to the present day we have helped to raise thousands of pounds for many local Charities, Hospices, Hospitals and Churches.
A Christmas message...
Christmas is the season of goodwill and we are always so blessed by everyone's generosity at this time of year. This can range from people donating to our charities, giving their time to help at our events or by attending our concerts and sharing in the music and celebrations.
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone for your kindness and support through the past year. Our latest Christmas Celebration is another example; ticket sales, the raffle and donations made the event a great success with all money raised going to Rotherham Hospice. We will publish the total amount raised early in the New Year.
Finally, Margaret is constantly being inundated with Christmas Cards from supporters, friends and well-wishers. She appreciates every single one of them and sends thanks to you all. However, replying to everyone with so many is sometimes difficult. So she would like to give the below printable card as a gift to say thank you and along with the choir, wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful and healthy New Year...
