The Salisbury Plain Military Wives Choir will give their first concert on 15th March at 7pm at St George’s Church, Bulford. They will be singing for their men before they deploy to Afghanistan next month and they will be raising money for Help for Heroes with donations on the door. Local school choirs and a men’s choir from Pewsey will also be singing.
The Salisbury Plain choir came together after being inspired by Gareth Malone’s Military Wives Choir who shot to number 1 at Christmas with their single Wherever You Are. Members from the original choir have now sung with them and given them encouragement.
With around 80 members, the choir is very social and provides a support network for when husbands, partners, dads and brothers are away. Choirmaster Susan Raeburn, headteacher at Kiwi School, Bulford, is very proud of them all and is very much looking forward to their first concert.
The choir have already had their television debut on the BBC’s The One Show which was aired earlier this month.
They greatly appreciate all support and look forward to performing on the night.
