Freda & George Dorrell are senior residents of Haddenham, best known for Freda's energetic fundraising activities and popular theatre trips, and George's hand-made dolls houses.
On Friday October 18, Freda hosted another of her celebrated music concerts at St Mary's parish church, in aid of her two favourite charities: Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
Fronted by Tim Armitt, the concert presented an impressive range of local musical talent, with an eclectic programme to delight everyone present.
Musicians included the Haddenham Bell Ringers, Haddenham Recorder Group, Daniel Bedwell, The Brambles Consort, Magdalene Smith, TCC2 Children's Choir, Sheilagh Armitt, and Ellie Norcott.
Haddenham Hoofers also entertained the near capacity audience with their unique style of metal capped clog dancing, based on Appalachian traditions.
Freda is delighted to report that the evening raised over £670 for the charities, and extends her sincere thanks to all who provided the evening's entertainment, and to everyone who came along to support the event.
Her next fundraising event will be a Doll's House Exhibition in the Village Hall on Saturday November 23, which will feature local Doll's House Clubs as well as various Craftsmen. For more information, please telephone 01844 291866. There is no charge to exhibit.
More images can be seen on our GALLERIES. The editor extends his apologies for failing to feature any of the musicians and dancers who performed in the second half of the concert. He was asked by the MC not to take further photographs, as he was concerned about the potential distraction caused to performers.
