Achord held their second Grand Charity Concert on May 14th 2016 to raise funds for The Royal British Legion and PASYKAF, The Cyprus Association. of Cancer Patients and Friends.
The event was held at The Sunshine Taverna, Curium Beach and the choir were joined on stage by Island Blend, a Barbershop/a-cappella, 4-part harmony (under the direction of Kerry Mills) and The Cyprus Brass Band (under the direction of Jamie McVicar).
The event was a huge success and raised €1,850 which was divided equally between the two charities.
Achord's Musical Director, Julie Edwards, said "The concert was great fun and extremely popular. These things are extremely complicated to arrange and I'm thankful for the group of unsung heroes that worked behind the scenes to make it all possible. It is hugely rewarding to be able to donate funds to two such worthy causes."
