On Saturday evening, two fabulous local choirs – The Costa Blanca Male Voice Choir and Valley Voices – sang at the Careline Theatre in Alcalali, to an appreciative near-capacity audience. The choice of music from the Male Voice Choir included Rhythm of Life, Can You Feel the Love Tonight and the South African Zulu Protest Song, Senzenina, whilst Valley Voices chose, amongst others, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Something Inside So Strong and Mamma Mia.
Elaine Horton, President of Jalon Valley Help, thanked the Sponsors of the evening and, in particular, Garcia Villas; Careline for the loan of the theatre; the volunteers of the Charity for the organisation of the event; and, most of all, the audience, who raised the fantastic amount of 1,760 euros. She explained that the money would be used to feed the hungry; help people with learning disabilities; and look after the men at the hostel in Gandia and a local womens refuge, as well as the sick and terminally ill.
Elaine also paid tribute to the many friends the charity had lost so far this year and, in particular, Keith Hart, who was a member of the Costa Blanca Male Voice Choir and had been desperate for the event to take place. As a fitting finale, the two Choirs joined together to sing Keith’s favourite song, You Raise Me Up, and finished with Anthem from Chess.
A wonderful evening and another successful event for Jalon Valley Help
