Events from 2016
We had a successful year, playing 24 gigs and after paying the drivers' petrol expenses we have around £200 to give to our chosen charity at the AGM in March 2017. We also helped raise £1300 for the Alzheimer Society and they have been promised a further £10.000 by Wolverhampton Council - was it our playing? We also helped raise £189 at the Worcestershire Players Wassail which goes to Cancer Research and a further £200 for the Ann Mitchell Fund based in Wolverley when we played for their Carols at the Cafe.

Dear SUSA members
I would like to thank you so much for all your support at the carol concert on Saturday. It was a tremendous night and we raised £1300 for people living with dementia. I know from the feedback already received that our audience really enjoyed your group and hope you can be part of our carol concert again next year.
It was so kind of you all to step in and cover our singing for the brain session. This was appreciated by myself and the audience. Thank you again and wishing you a very happy Christmas.
