Fundraising in memory of former choir member

A year’s fundraising in memory of former choir member, Tony Pickett, culminated in a sell-out concert on Sunday 10th December and a total of £12,440 being raised for the British Heart Foundation.

Tony, who lived in Frome, died of a heart attack aged 62 whilst cycling in July 2016. He sang both in the Bath Male Choir and the mixed-voice Bath Chorus, both led by Grenville Jones.

Throughout this year many fundraising events were organised by choir members. In March Simon Kale raised over £5,800 running the London Marathon and other local events and the concert boosted the figure for the final total.

The concert in December at St Michael’s Church was attended by Tony’s partner, Ginette Draisey, and members of his family. She told the audience and choir members; “I can’t thank you all enough for this past year, not just the amazing money raised, but for your support that has helped carry me through.”
