Launch of Appeal to support the choir

The Frideswide Foundation held a reception after Evensong on 16 January 2016 in Christ Church Cathedral to launch the Frideswide Voices Appeal. The event was also the first public viewing of our first film.

A film about the choir!

Thank you to everyone who gave so generously of their skills and time to make and edit the film.
