Which charities are we currently supporting?
Dogs for Good - an innovative charity, exploring ways dogs can help people overcome specific challenges and enrich and improve lives and communities.
Musica - a Suffolk-based charity that gives disadvantaged people the chance to learn something new and exciting through the power of music.
How do we choose the charities every year?
Every year our choir members send through suggestions and we choose the most popular. As a community choir we are committed to involve all members in everything that we do.
What we are doing to support our charities?
Through our performances we generate income from the fees that we charge. We deduct our running costs and aim to donate a lump sum to our nominated charities at least once a year.
Sometimes we perform at events to help them raise funds or join them at social gatherings.
Over the past five years we have donated nearly £3,000 to the following local charities:
Brooke's Wish to Walk
Stepping Stones Nursery
British Heart Foundation
Suffolk Age U.K.
Suffolk Family Carers
Feedback from 4YP on receipt of a £500 donation from SSS, January 2018:
"Our sincerest thanks go to the Suffolk Soul Singers for their incredible donation in support of young people, which they presented at their amazing concert yesterday.
Representing 4YP, Daniel somehow managed to give an impressive impromptu speech despite being blown away by their generosity & outstanding singing talent at their amazing concert at St Peter's by the Waterfront"
Thanks from the Baby Bereavement Group for their cheque for £500 presented at our concert at St. Peter's by the Waterfront in January.
"So wonderful that this amazing charity has been recognised for the wonderful support that it provides for bereaved families. Just wanted to share this and to say thank you once again ‘Suffolk Soul Singers’ for the funds you raised to help this charity continue with their vital work and support "Ali Brett
