Between the 27th and 31st of January Bangor University Music Society held a charity week in order to raise money for two children’s charities. The charities, chosen by society members, were:
– Banardos (National)
– Hope House (Local)
Overall, we managed to raise £80 throughout the course of the week.
Members were invited to come to rehearsals dressed in their pyjamas or onesies on both the Tuesday and Friday night. Of course, teddies were more than welcome!
At Wednesday’s Lunchtime Funtime members were invited to donate to the same causes. There were many wonderful acts and we all had a wonderful time!
Thursday’s social was the highlight of the entire week. Our social secretary, Robyn, organised a fantastic children’s party which saw many society members playing ridiculous children’s games (duck duck goose anyone?), culminating in a mass, department wide game of hide and seek. The prize for best hiding place has to go to Jack Davies! Emma Hembry also came away with a new friend having won the “Guess the Name of the Teddy” competition. It was a brilliant night for all!
