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.
...and a Happy New Year
The Margaret Duckworth Singers would like to thank everyone for their support through 2018, culminating in a very successful Christmas Concert in December at St. Margaret's Parish Church, Swinton.
From those who bought tickets, gave their time and help, participated in the evening and donated to the cause Margaret was able to present Rotherham Hospice with a cheque for £2500. More information can be found on the following link to the Rotherham Hospice Facebook page.
Margaret and the members of the choir would like to take this opportunity to wish all our friends, supporters and visitors to this website a very Happy and Healthy New Year for 2019.
