Sutton Valence Choral Society supports a local charity each year and works with them to raise funds through publicity at our concerts and various events such as our popular Walk & Sing.
Our charity for 2020/21/22 is Slide Away. Slide Away offers support to children and young people in West Kent who have been bereaved of a family member or friend. They also support children and young people who have a parent or sibling with a life limiting illness.
