Rhondda choir hits the high notes thanks to Pete’s Slice of the Pie
A Rhondda-based community choir have benefited from Peter’s Slice of the Pie Community Fund.
The Faith Hope Harmony Community Choir has been donated funding for a brand new portable keyboard by Wales’ premier pie-maker.
The new equipment will be used for concerts around the region, including nursing homes and charities.
The choir won the prize after completing the Peter’s Food online application form with a strong bid for funding.
Choir Leader Faith Griffith said: “We are delighted with the £250 funding from Peter’s Food for the new keyboard.
“We perform regularly at various community locations and have really struggled in the past with a piano that was too old and large to travel around with.”
The keyboard was used for the first time on Friday evening (29th November), when Faith Hope Harmony performed a medley of Christmas carols to entertain the residents of Ty Ross nursing home in Treherbert.
The choir has been running for five years, and currently has over twenty members.
Claire Conway, Marketing Manager at the Caerphilly-based food giant said: “It was a pleasure to watch Faith Hope Harmony perform with their new keyboard at Ty Ross.
“The group are a fantastic addition to the Rhondda community and give up their free time to entertain people with their charitable performances.
“They are a worthy winner of this Slice of the Pie and we’re proud that this contribution will help to make their concerts bigger and better.
“We are thrilled to be able to support the local communities that have always supported us.”
Faith added: “Thanks to Peter’s Slice of the Pie we now have a stronger more professional sound.
“We’re looking forward to putting the keyboard to good use for the rest of our Christmas performances now!”
