Sintons’ Singers return for festive fundraising
The festive choir at Sintons, which has raised hundreds of pounds for charity over the past three years, is returning again for 2019 to perform for Christmas shoppers in two of the region’s most popular retail destinations.
Sintons’ Singers was first established in 2015 to deliver a repertoire of festive favourite songs in aid of the firm’s nominated charity. Since that time, it has raised a significant sum of money, most recently for Daft as a Brush, which is Sintons’ current staff charity.
The choir is now returning again for a fourth year, and will be giving performances in the Metrocentre on Wednesday, December 11th at 1pm, and Newcastle’s Eldon Square on Friday, December 20th at midday.
Sintons’ Singers, which comprises people from throughout the business, will be supported on both occasions by colleagues who will be collecting donations from generous shoppers on behalf of Daft as a Brush.
Since adopting the much-loved charity two years ago, Sintons has raised thousands of pounds through an array of activities and events, including the firm’s biggest-ever golf day, first-ever netball competition and hugely successful five-a-side football tournament.
The goal for Sintons’ fundraising is to purchase a liveried ambulance for Daft as a Brush, to increase its provision for transporting chemotherapy and radiotherapy patients across Newcastle, North and South Tyneside, Northumberland and Durham.
Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Our Sintons’ Singers Christmas choir have proved very popular over the past three years, with people from across the firm generously giving up their time to rehearse and put on performances at venues across Tyneside, while also raising money for charity.
“We are delighted they will be performing again this year and are already underway with rehearsals for these, which I’m sure will be well received as usual by Christmas shoppers in two of the region’s busiest shopping centres. To also be able to raise money for our staff charity, Daft as Brush, is fantastic and support for our choir, as well as donations to our collection buckets, will be hugely appreciated.”
