09 June 2022
The Western Trust Adult Learning Disability Choir ‘Friends Together’ held their Summer Concert performance this week at the Alley Theatre, Strabane.
The event was hosted by Highland Radio’s Gary Gamble and raised a total of £705 for Cancer Research.
The choir which includes service users, carers and staff from Fermanagh, Omagh, Strabane and Derry/Londonderry areas have been busy rehearsing over the past couple of months and performed a number of their favourite songs including Catch a Falling Star, Count on Me, There’s a Power in the Music and Imagine.
Speaking about the success of the concert, Deirdre Kelly, Local Involvement Facilitator for ALD Services at the Western Trust said:
“It was a truly wonderful and uplifting experience for all our service users who performed brilliantly. We were delighted with the warm welcome and enthusiasm from everyone who attended our Summer Concert. Thank you to all our family and friends for their continued support and encouragement.”
“I would like to thank the Alley Theatre management and staff for their incredible help in hosting our second concert in this wonderful venue, we very much appreciate all you have done for us. A special word of thanks must also go to our compère, Gary Gamble, who generously gave his time to attend and made the choir feel very special.”
