Havering singers were invited to join an all-male choir and experience the music and camaraderie at a special re-launch event.

Thurrock Male Voice Choir has expanded to become the Thurrock and Havering Male Voice Choir and they held their re-launch at their annual spring concert on Saturday, May 12 at 7.30pm.

Daniel Gricks was inspired by Gareth Malone to join the choir two years ago.

He said: “The choir has been in existence since the Second World War to lift the spirits of all who sang or listened.

“We have raised over £250,000 during this iconic choir’s 80 year existence and enjoy the performances and the feedback knowing what we do helps others.”

The Mayor of Thurrock, Councillor Tunde Ojetola, the Mayor of Havering, Cllr Linda Van den Hende attended the special event at St John the Evangelist Church in Victoria Avenue, Grays.
