Spangles Sparkles for MABS

Spangles presents the cheque

Spangles Ladies’ Harmony Chorus met with MABS Fundraising Co-ordinator, Janet Bell, to hand over their fundraising cheque for 2010, amounting to 388€. “We have supported MABS Murcia/Mar Menor since it began and we are delighted to say that the chorus has unanimously voted to support the charity again in 2011.” said co-Chorus Manager, Anthea Prentice. “Many of us have been affected by cancer in one way or another, so it makes sense to continue our support of the work that MABS does in this region”. Spangles has also sung at several MABS events, including Café Golf, Serena Golf Hotel and the opening of the new MABS Cancer Centre in San Javier and is looking forward to more events in 2011.

Several of Spangles’ members are also MABS volunteers, including Jill Chorley, who sings Baritone and is Care Co-ordinator for MABS. “We’re delighted that our girls continue to support us in every way they can. We all have fun singing together every week and enjoy our social get-togethers.” commented Jill. It’s a fact that singing makes you feel good too – all this physical, neurological and emotional activity serves to release those “feel-
good” hormones called endorphins, so you are being flooded with happy hormones that give you a sense of peace and well-being – maybe that’s why these ladies are always smiling?

Councillor Isabel Montesinos Mercader (Culture, Education, Tourism and Foreigners), who is a staunch supporter of both Spangles and MABS, was on hand to help draw the winner of the Christmas and New Year Quiz, run by Spangles. Congratulations to the winner of the 50€ prize, Mr George Turner of Los Alcázares.

Spangles is now working hard at perfecting two contest songs, in readiness for the third annual convention of the Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers (SABS), which is being held in San Pedro del Pinatar. “We’re really excited to have this event in the Murcia region” remarked Lyn Baines; co-Chorus Manager and SABS Marketing Manager. “This is also the first-ever chorus contest to be held in Spain, so we want to do our region proud.” The SABS ‘En Armonía’ convention will run from 8 to 11 April and will include gold medal choruses and quartets from the UK, with SABS members also attending from all over Spain and Portugal. Two shows are planned, on Saturday, 9 April and Sunday, 10 April, and the 8€ tickets will soon be on sale. If you would like to reserve tickets or find out more, please email
