The Kingsmen were invited to attend a charity fund raising concert with the Wadebridge Male Voice Choir in Egloshayle Church, Wadebridge on Remembrance Day (11/11/17) to raise funds for a new molecular diagnostic unit for the Oncology Dept at Derriford hospital. The unit costs £13K and funds to the tune of £5K has already been raised. The concert raised another magnificent £716 towards the total.

Wadebridge MVC under the musical direction of Paul Mitchell with some 42 men singing (plus 6 members from Rame MVC-charity instigated by them) performed some fantastic songs such as 'Angels', 'Rhythm of Life', 'Sailing', 'Bring Him Home', 'Cornish Hearts' and many more (almost literally 'raising the roof'). Roy Hann, Music Director of the Kingsmen was equally impressed with the performance from the 23 Kingsmen who sang some uplifting ballads such as 'I Believe', Gospel Medley', Can You Feel The Love Tonight' in their inimitable style (total contrast to the WMVC style) and much to the delight of a packed audience.

The coach journey (on a horrid winters evening) was well worth the effort and we were ably supported by ex Kingsmen stalwarts, John Tyler, John Lavelle (and Marion) and John Carter (and Sheila). Several wives travelled too and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening, especially the 'afterglow' (inc hot Cornish pasties) in the Wadebridge Camels Rugby Club (opposite the church) with further songs between all the groups being shared.
