Each year HCS has nominated charities for which funds are raised at our Christmas concert.  For Christmas 2016 these were the East and North Herts branch of the national charity Motor Neurone Disease Association, and locally-based charity Demand.  Both charities were nominated by choir members, and over £1,200 was raised at our Christmas Celebration concert.

HCS Musical Director, Derek Harrison, is pictured presenting Marilyn Dodson from MNDA with a cheque, together with Linda Adams who nominated the charity.
