Sanders School's signing choir performed at First Step's Tasty Treats event


Youngsters performed at a tea shop fundraiser and helped to raise just over £70.

The Sanders School Signing Choir performed five songs as part of First Step’s Tasty Treats morning.

The event, at the charity’s centre in Tangmere Crescent, Hornchurch, was attended by more than 40 people, including co-founder Gill Hare.

Ceiri Van Haeften, hearing impaired unit communicator at the school, in Suttons Lane, Hornchurch, said: “I was approached by First Step asking the Signing Choir to perform as they had heard how unique and different it is from an ordinary singing choir.

“The choir performed brilliantly as usual and some visitors came specially to see them, having heard they were on the performance list.

“First Step is such a worthy cause and we were only too happy to appear.”

The charity’s fundraising manager, Michelle Mitchell, said: “The choir did a fantastic job and were wonderful ambassadors for Sanders School.

“I am very grateful to Ceiri Van Haeften and every member of the choir for joining us and making Tasty Treats very special.”

The next event will be from 9am to midday on April 24.
