MP Stephen gets choir post
7:10am Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
STEPHEN Metcalfe has been appointed patron of Thurrock Male Voice Choir.
The MP for East Thurrock has supported the choir on a number of occasions, recently joining them to celebrate their 75th anniversary.
The choir of around 40 men was formed in 1938 and has been going strong ever since.
The choir has also raised more than £100,000 for local and national charities over the years.
Mr Metcalfe said: “I was delighted to accept the invitation to become patron.
“They are a fantastic group who make such a positive contribution to the local community.
“I look forward to supporting the choir in the future and would encourage others in South Basildon and East Thurrock to do the same.”
The choir meets in Grays Methodist Church Hall on Monday evenings at 7.30pm and is always on the lookout for new members.
