Otley Christmas Tree Festival

1st December 2016
WOOSH decorated a Christmas Tree at the annual festival at All Saints Parish Church, to raise money for BASIK. The tree was decorated with Kenyan Flag bunting, mini books and pencils, and Christmas-scented salt dough baubles. Our tree collected well over £120 for this great charity!
On the Friday evening, we were delighted that Westgate School Choir, conducted by Ms Carpenter, was once again invited to perform on stage with The Chippendale Singers. Our programme included: It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year; Cowboy Carol; Joseph's Carol; Away in a Manger; Ragtime Carol; Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree. The highlight however was singing While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks to the tune of On Ilkla' Moor Baht' At, jointly with The Chippendale Singers! The concert was a sell-out with around 220 people paying to come and hear us sing. Many thanks to Mr Martin Campey for accompanying us on the night.
