The Torpoint Lady Singers is a choir formed in 1988. Based in Torpoint, Cornwall, it has members drawn from all over the Rame Peninsula. Over the years since its formation, the choir has raised tens of thousands of pounds for charity, as well as giving audiences a great deal of musical pleasure.

First the serious stuff. In December the Ladies presented a cheque for £1,345 to Cancer Research (below) as a result of their fantastic fundraising activities in the latter part of the year.
Then, at their Annual Christmas Concert with the Rame Peninsula MVC they raised around £620 for Childrens' Hospice SW. A representative from the Charity, Zoe Partridge, is seen below with TLS Chairperson, Chris Trethewey.

Now the fun stuff. The ladies have been busier than usual this Christmas, as the following images demonstrate. (Follow the links to see more photos).

Unfortunately, Sylvia Fraser was indisposed and her place taken by Lyn Murray. Paul Roper recorded two videos of the singing that you can view here: Video 1; Video 2.
