GCGC sing their hearts out for mental health charity, Oakleaf!
Have you heard the magical sounds of Godalming Community Gospel Choir (GCGC) before? Whether you have or you haven't, it's definitely time!On Saturday 17th November at 7pm, the choir will perform at Guildford United Reformed Church in aid of local mental health charity, Oakleaf Enterprise.
Having performed at last year's Godalming Music Festival, GCGC was described by Neil Jenkins, Chief Adjudicator, as "powerful and uplifting [with] a unified, strong vocal sound, a big gospel sound".
GCGC has been running for just over a year, with 90 members from all different backgrounds and walks of life.
Oakleaf Enterprise is Surrey's mental health charity supporting people into employment through training, counselling, social inclusion activities and therapies. Supporting around 110 people per week, Oakleaf also runs as a social enterprise, offering upholstery, horticulture, print and design, and packing services to the public.
Emma-Sue Prince, director of the choir, said: "GCGC is a community and as such, we strongly believe in taking the joy of gospel singing into different community settings. Everyone has a voice and the potential to develop; far more than we think or perceive. We support Oakleaf in their valuable work to bring purpose and meaning to those sectors of the community which are often ignored."
Tickets for this fantastic event are £10 each, available from Tess at Oakleaf on 01483 303649 or email@example.com.
