Local Charity receives Cheque from Mormon Choir

As part of members’ desire to serve others the Chelmsley Wood congregation’s local leader, David Charmbury, from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints presented a cheque for £527.39 to the charity ‘Solihull Carers’. The presentation took place at the opening of their new offices at the Solihull Fire Station.

‘Solihull Carers’ are part of The Carers Trust, formerly known as the Princess Royal Trust of Carers. The ‘Solihull Carers’ provide emotional support, information and advice to people who provide unpaid care for a relative or friend who are disabled, frail of have a long term illness.

Ben Yates from the ‘Solihull Carers’ commented, “We are extremely grateful for this generous donation. As a small charity we rely, and continue to survive, due to organisations such as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The funds donated will benefit our Adult Carers Team greatly.”

In response, David Charmbury said, “We are always actively looking for ways to make a positive contribution to our local community and it is fantastic that we are able to make a donation to the ‘Solihull Carers’.”

The money was raised last December when customers at the Morrison’s Superstore in Castle Bromwich were treated to a festive sound provided by members from the Coventry congregations who formed a choir and sang carols over two days during the Christmas holiday. The choir consisted of 36 singers of all ages; the youngest being Melody who was just 2 years old!
