Spangles Does it for Charity


Saturday, 30 March, saw Spangles Ladies’ Harmony Chorus taking part in a big charity fundraising day in Mil Palmeras. Organised by JP’s Bar in the square, this annual event has helped to raise thousands of Euros for local charities, such as the AECC, MABS Cancer Support Group and EMAUS, the children’s home in Elche.

The main event of the day was a bike ride, with over 70 riders taking part. Supporters returned to the bar and were entertained by Spangles. “We have a very busy time leading up to our annual contest, which takes place on 13 April in Benalmádena, Málaga” said Spangles Musical Director, Gail Grainger, “but we support local charity and were delighted to take part in this great fundraising day.”

It’s anticipated that the final total of funds raised will reach 2,500€, which will be divided between the AECC, EMAUS and MABS Murcia. There will be a presentation night at JP’s Bar on Friday, 19 April from 8.00 pm and all are welcome. For further details, please call Graham on 965 060 691.

Following on from their gold medal success in 2011, Spangles has released a CD called ‘Pure Gold’, which includes their two winning contest songs and many audience favourites. ‘Pure Gold’ is on sale at 5€ and makes an ideal gift. Call 968 432 525 or 968 334 527 to order your copy. The chorus will be competing again on 13 April in Benalmádena and hope to return to Los Alcázares with gold once more.

Spangles welcomes new members so, if you’re looking to make new friends and enjoy singing, why not visit Spangles when they rehearse at Las Claras? They meet every Thursday from 10.00am to 1.00pm.
