Our regular Choirs and Orchestras all run fundraising events to support Wren in its charity work. These can vary from car boot sales, to busking in the streets to major events such as Ceilidhs and Concerts.
There are a number of purposes for these fundraisers:
Fundraising Ceilidh at Alverdiscott -
A group of 10 musicians from the Folk Orchestra of North Devon got together as ‘Strings ‘n Things’ to run a highly successful ceilidh in Alverdiscott, just south of Barnstaple. Nearly 100 people were treated to an evening of lively dances and a ploughman’s supper and the event raised over £600 for Wren after hall hire and food expenses. Special ‘thank yous’ go to the organisers - Heather, Pat and Liz and to our essential volunteers - Sue for running the kitchen, Geoff on the door and raffle and Bev for a lot of running around!
A great evening of fun and entertainment with North Devon Folk Orchestra, North Devon Folk Choir, North Devon Roots Band and Roots Acoustic. A special thankyou from us all to Nick & Becki for organising us! :)
