“I went out one afternoon and had one of the most inspiring experiences I’ve had in my life – I rocked up to Ashburton choir. It was incredibly scary for me because I’m one of those people who probably still thinks they can’t sing! However, I went along and the generosity of spirit, the sense of community, caring and joy that exists in that choir, it’s so special, it’s powerful.
Every week I go there, I see, I feel and I hear how much compassion there is for one another and that’s what a community is about and what a family is about. I feel privileged to be part of this choir.”
