The John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation was honoured to be chosen as the recipient charity for a Concert by two superb British Men's Choirs.
The Bournemouth Male Voice Choir teamed up with the Mousehole Male Voice Choir for a concert at St Mary's Church in Ferndown. It was a fantastic evening which raised an incredible £1481!
St Mary's Church was full to bursting for this wonderfully diverse programme. Beautiful harmonies, professional soloists and a spectacular venue captivated the audience who enjoyed a sensational performance by two very talented choirs. The retiring collection alone received an incredible £510 in donations which is testimony itself to a great evening. A huge thank you to all those who contributed.

We can't thank the members of the choirs enough for all the work that went into ensuring that this event was such a success and our thanks must also go to all those involved behind the scenes. £1481 will make a really big difference to a great many young people's lives
