                        Soon after Spangles gained a national silver medal at the SABS (Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers) annual convention in Benalmádena, Málaga, two chorus members took part in a 60 kilometre walk to help raise funds and awareness for the DEBRA charity, which is dedicated to helping people who suffer from the painful genetic skin condition Epidermolysis bullosa (EB).

    Cream Teas and Sunshine

    We were delighted to take part in the fundraising cream tea event at St Nicholas Church in Camposol on Saturday, 3 June. The day turned out to be a very hot one, with temperatures of around 27 degrees centigrade, but we were well cared for, with cover against the glaring sunshine.

    Spangles Ladies’ Harmony Chorus joined forces with the Agrupación Coral Nuestra Señora de la Asunción and Rondalla son del Mar Menor groups in a benefit concert to raise funds for those who lost everything in the devastating floods in Los Alcázares, just before Christmas.
