Invictus Trust, Eggs and Mini Eggs

My choir, The Suitcase Singers, collects for two charities each year. This year our local one has been The Invictus Trust, a Cornish charity set up to help youngsters with mental health problems. Please do click on the red link to read more about one family’s wonderful work in memory of their son and brother.

When their hens are laying, we get delicious fresh eggs from our Dear friends, today in a delightful 4 eggs container.

It was a day for a treat, some mini-eggs!

The Invictus Trust, A Lane and Jasmine

One of the charities that The Suitcase Singers supports is the Invictus Trust. The Invictus Trust was set up in January 2010 by Ben’s family and is dedicated to the memory of Ben Cowburn, a wonderfully vibrant young man whose struggle with mental health issues had tragic consequences. The Invictus Trust is named after the poem that inspired Ben. ¬†Click on the links to find out more.
Today we presented a cheque for ¬£600 which Ben’s Father accepted with gratitude. He explained that the money we have donated will be the icing on the cake for the new unit which is about to open in Cornwall, the first such unit in Cornwall. The money we have raised will go to equipping the music room and to the parents’ accommodation. Until now, young people with mental health problems could only be treated outside Cornwall so this is a wonderful development.

This is our walk into town. Aren’t we lucky?

Imagine the perfume in the lane as I walked past this Jasmine hedge.

Concert, Flushing and Last Night’s Full Moon

Fabulous concert and Cornish Cream Tea this afternoon with The Suitcase Singers, singing our hearts out and raising money for our two charities, ShelterBox and The Invictus Trust.

The view across to Flushing from that side of the river is so very lovely and there were swans on the water.

Last night’s full moon was gorgeous, seen through the trees and with an orange glow all around.
