Celebrating in Style

Celebration Concert

As part of the celebrations to mark our 30th Birthday, an evening of musical entertainment was held at the end of October at the La Mon Hotel.

Following a conversation about Gareth Malone's Military Wives choir, Mobility Instructor Millicent Brown formed a choir of guide dog owners, staff and volunteers called 'Their Master's Voice'. The evening was a culmination of seven months of rehearsals under the direction of Miriam De Groot, Children's Habilitation Specialist and took the audience through a full programme including ‘Bring Him Home’ from Les Miserables and ‘You Raise Me Up’.

Hosted by U105’s Carolyn Stewart, it was a fabulous evening with a great party atmosphere added to by the talents of the Big Band Warriors swing band.  

The 230 guests, including supporters, guide dog owners, My Guide service users, staff and volunteers were incredibly generous, raising a handsome sum to support our work here in NI

A fantastic night by all accounts!
