Patrons & Sponsors

Our Patrons -

Behind the scenes our two Patrons work tirelessly to establish the financial viability of Canvey Community Choir and also to promote the benefits of what singing in a choir can give to its members:

To improve members knowledge of music and singing ability.
To reduce social isolation and foster friendships.

And perhaps more importantly what benefits the Choir can give to the community:-

Entertaining audiences on Canvey and in the Borough for Civic Events such as; The Armed Forces Day - Lighting Up The Town etc.
Entertaining residents in Sheltered Housing / Residential & Nursing Homes.
Raising funds for local Charities by performing concerts or being one of several acts within a show.
Promoting Canvey Island and Castle Point Borough Council

So A Big Thank You, From The Choir Members Go To Both :-

Councilor - Ray Howard

Ray is a True Islander and since 1985 he has represented the community as a Conservative Borough Councillor and County Council Councillor. His tireless work over the years has earned him the title of “Mr. Canvey”


Entrepreneur - James Parkin

James is also a True Islander and over the years he has built up his “Leisure and Amenities Provision” along Canvey’s Eastern Esplanade and at every opportunity supports local charities.

The Canvey Community Choir wish to thank the following:-
