A Perfect Summer Evening! The sun shone, the lake was calm and the music played- it was a perfect summer evening for Cumbria Singer’s fund raising event ‘Sing Around the Lake’ which took place on Friday 17th May. Over 60 guests gathered on the Raven, which had kindly been provided Ullswater Steamers. Singing was led by Jackie Knox and the ‘Good Time Boys’ with an assortment of ‘American Front Porch’ songs, followed by Mark Stephenson and the Morland Ukulele Group (MUGS) who entertained everyone with their enthusiastic and harmonious strumming. An enjoyable musical interlude was provided by Jackie Wright, a member of Cumbria Singers, who played a selection of well known ‘Songs from the Shows’ on her clarinet. The on board bucket collection raised £200 for the Sunbeams Music Trust. The proceeds from ticket sales will be used towards the 2025 Cumbria Singers concert in Carlisle Cathedral on 26th April.
