Concert to raise cash for palliative care unit

THE Hawick PSA Male Voice Choir are putting the finishing touches to a charity concert scheduled for Friday, November 2 in the Town Hall and have put together a programme which is sure to please all ages.

Last year the choir assembled a talented cast in support of Combat Stress, but this year the concert is in aid of the Margaret Kerr Unit at Borders General Hospital. The unit is under construction and will provide palliative care for people throughout the Borders.

As well as the choir, under the baton of Ann Witherington, the Lesley McFarlane Dancers will also be performing, as well as the junior section of Hawick Saxhorn Band.

The Selkirk Amateur Operatic Society is currently rehearsing for next spring’s show, Oliver, and will be singing songs from that show as well as other musicals in both the first and second half of the concert.

There will also be solos from members of the choir and also from guests, including Debbie Lyons, Joyce Tinlin, Steve Brown and Geoff Ross.

Tickets are now on sale price £6 each from Deans and Simpsons and Teviot Wines in Hawick, McCuddens Newsagents in Selkirk, from choir members, and tickets will also be available on the door on the night. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
