Treorchy Male Voice Choir on song in the Borders

The world famous Treorchy Male Voice Choir head home to Wales today after a hugely successful tour of the Borders.

The choir performed at a sportsman’s dinner in aid of the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust last Thursday in Galashiels, which saw Finlay Calder and Jim Leishman speak.

And an auction saw two Scotland rugby jerseys worn by Jedburgh’s Greig Laidlaw raise £1,700.

After a trip to Murrayfield to perform, the 60-strong choir played to a capacity crowd in the Volunteer Hall on Saturday, with support from Langlee Community Choir, for another Rowan Boland Memorial Trust fundraiser, with influences ranging from Scottish to African.

They then went east to perform to around 160 in The Maltings at Berwick-Upon-Tweed on Sunday afternoon before returning to Galashiels in the evening for a farewell reception and sing-song at the town’s Cricket Club.

An RBMT spokesman said: “We are grateful to the choir for making the trip up in such large numbers and helping to raise a huge amount of money for our charity.”
