Singing for Sarcoma

A couple of weekends ago, Mum and Laura came down to stay with us. It's always lovely to have them with us but there was a specific reason for them coming - on Saturday night, Laura and I were singing in a concert to raise money for sarcoma. There is a lovely lady in my branch at church, Pat, who is suffering from sarcoma and she tries to do everything she can to raise awareness and money for the charity.

She really is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and so when we were asked to sing, we were only too happy to oblige.

During the day on Saturday, Mum, Laura and I went out for a little while. Our time pretty much consisted of sitting in the krispy kreme cafe, eating doughnuts, drinking hot chocolate and chatting. We always seem to find loads to talk about! I had the chocolate dreamcake doughnut. It has to be done, it is truly divine! Later on in the day, we went to Pizza Hut which Seth joined us for, then we headed to the concert. We had to be there early to have a sound check and we'd never been to the church building where the concert was being held before. That was really bad English wasn't it? It doesn't really read that well, but never mind, you get the point of what I am saying :). We managed to find the building just in time, only there were loads of roadworks in front of it and we missed the turning for the car park. Laura and I got out of the car at this point and, with the guitar, we walked back to the chapel while Mum and Seth tried to find a way to get back in. The front gate of the church building was locked and when Laura saw that, she suggested that we jump the fence, at which point, I exclaimed, "I'm pregnant!" The man in front of us found that pretty amusing and agreed that it might not be the best idea! We managed to get into the building without too much drama though. No, I didn't jump the fence, we went through the car park entrance.

The concert was a big success. All sorts of music was performed and the building was full. Laura and I had fun singing our songs!

It's not that we love performing, we just enjoy singing and playing together, so it's nice that we were able to do it for a good cause. A lot of money was raised which was fantastic, Pat was thrilled. It was a really enjoyable evening and I'm glad that we were able to be a part of that.
