The Starr Trust were delighted to be chosen as charity of choice at the Christmas Ball for members of the local Rock Choirs, held at the Holiday Inn, Brighton on the December 14.

The Rock Choirs from Brighton, Burgess Hill, Lewes, Hove, Haywards Heath and Eastbourne are led by Charlotte Fane, who brought all the choirs together for their Christmas celebrations.

Charlotte said “We were delighted to support the Starr Trust this Christmas. Rock Choir is all about community, and it seemed fitting to support this local charity to help young people in our area”.

Tracey from the Starr Trust said “We were thrilled that Rock Choirs in East Sussex chose to support us at their fabulous end of year ball and would like to say a huge thank you to Charlotte. The ballroom at the Holiday Inn looked spectacular and really made everybody feel festive. The guests had a great time, bursting into song spontaneously throughout the evening, and the £760 raised will help us to support young people in 2015.

The Starr Trust is a charity in Hove who support individuals living in the BN post code area aged 10-18 to fulfil their potential in sports, arts and education, by providing a helping hand to achieve their goals at a time when they really need it.

Rock Choir offers a very different experience to the traditional classical or community choir, pioneering a new approach to vocal training and entertainment and offering fun weekly rehearsals using well-known hit songs with original vocal arrangements and performance elements.

Rock Choir sing their own versions of pop, Motown and chart songs, with no audition and no need to read music. For more details about joining Rock Choir visit
