We have launched our Prospects Trust Christmas 2019 Appeal live from Snakehall Farm. We have a problem with our dishwasher, find out from Co-worker Bev what’s up:
If you are faced with a mountain of washing up after your Christmas feast you too will know just how we all feel at Snakehall Farm after all of our Co-workers have started their day with a vital cuppa, recharged their batteries with a warm winter lunch and finished their day with just one more tea. On top of the mountain of dishes we also have 100s of jars to sterilise for our Mamma Julie’s preserves. This daily task is usually aided with our commercial dishwasher which speeds through the washing and makes our sterilising a whizz. Unfortunately our repairman (who comes quite regularly) has told us we have worn out the dishwasher from too much work! We all know the feeling right? We are now hoping our 2020 season can be sprung into life with a no leak/no leek commercial grade dishwasher and with your help we can.
The Shovel the Hovel Project receives a boost of funding that made us all sing at Snakehall Farm this summer. The Prospects Trust received over £900 from ReSound after their beautiful summer concert. We spoke with our Trustee Jane Kershaw about her involvement with ReSound:
“I am very proud to be a member of ReSound, a 36 voice choir that performs regularly around Cambridge, singing an eclectic contemporary and traditional mix of a cappella songs from different cultures, rich in harmony and rhythm.
We have been singing together since 2010, when the choir
was created by our musical Director, Rowena Whitehead. Rowena has been called “a musical activist”,
a neat phrase that sums up a thread weaving through all she does. She is a
performer, a composer, a teacher, a singing leader, a facilitator who inspires
everyone she works with.
She believes that singing runs deep within us all and
reaches parts that nothing else touches. For Rowena singing is more than a
pleasure, it’s an essential expression of life that helps individuals and
This is one of the things that makes Tuesday evening
rehearsals so special: we only do music
that touches the heart and everyone knows each other pretty well after singing
together for such a long time.
We usually sing to raise money for charitable causes, so everyone in the choir was delighted to sing for Prospects and get to know a bit about it as an organisation – and a total of £950 from the concert at St Cyriac’s was an added bonus.”
