A choir has chosen Maldon charity the David Randall Foundation to support this year.

The Essex Police Choir’s support for the foundation will come from funds raised at its annual concert with the Essex Police Band at St Luke’s, Tiptree, on October 19.

Funds will also be raised at its annual Christmas concert at Trinity Methodist Church, Chelmsford, on December 14.

The choir, which was formed in 1989, will also be supporting Chelmsford-based charity Kids Inspire.

A choir spokesman said: “Having last year raised money for the Colchester Cancer Centre Campaign and the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association, Essex Police Choir, as part of their 30th anniversary celebrations, have chosen two smaller, local charities to support in 2019.

“The David Randall Foundation from Maldon, supports people with life-limiting illnesses to enjoy life to the full for as long as possible by helping to provide ‘Good Days’ for them and their families.

“It also provides scholarships to people who demonstrate exceptional dedication and passion in pursuing their ambitions in sport or music but may be held back by their financial situation.”
