Friday last saw The Incognito Singers give a very good and well received concert at Mira Flores Camping Los Gallados.
A good mix of songs from the shows, loves songs and ballads performed to a high standard.
A very appreciative of 100 plus audience not only enjoyed the singing but the fish and chip supper afterwards.
The evening was enjoyed by all and the total raised was in excess of €900.
The proceeds were for their new quarantine isolation unit for when they take in stray cats and dogs that have yet to be checked and inoculated. For more information visit the PAW-PATAS website.
Well done to the choir and well done to PAWS PATAS for a successful evening.
The choir once again did their part to successfully raise funds at the recent Walk for Life Concert
The choir was delighted to sing at the recent concert in aid of Walk For Life. Audiences for both performances were very appreciative.
An estimate of €825 was raised at the two performances, so well done everyone for taking part. It is a nice amount to go toward such a small and hopefully blossoming charity that does such good work.
If your charity is wants to hold a concert to raise funds, then simply contact us. You plan the event, advertise it and produce tickets, we can help with poster artwork and then we simply turn up and sing. We do not charge a fee! What could be easier?
Terry on of our Tenors will be taking part in this year’s Great North Run
Not only is he doing this to raise awareness and money for Teenage Cancer Trust but is running the race with his two sons, but as a septuagenarian is not going to give them an easy time and hopes they will be able to keep up with him.
I’m sure his target of £400 can easily be achieved and hopefully surpassed.
Terry has the backing of the choir both in pride and now in sponsorship via his Just Giving site.
On Saturday 10th March, the Walk For Life team are holding a fund raiser at the Amigos Bowling Arboleas
Anyone interested in putting a team together?
The choir is proud of you Terry and we will be supporting you!
If you would like to support Terry in this challenge, please visit his “Just Giving” page.

Yet another great performance and evenings entertainment by The Incognito Singers.
The feedback and comments were just so kind and uplifting, thank you for everyone who commented, here are a few clips from various people and facebook pages.
Tonight the Incognito Singers gave a fabulous pre Christmas concert up in Albox at the Rosaleda (their normal rehearsal venue) for friends and family.
Our MD had this to say about the event:
Well last nights concert for Friends and Family was a real success.
The Incognito Singers held their summer concert at the weekend to two capacity houses.
As this was their first official home concert, there were delighted to be sold out for the Saturday and Sunday. The choir delivered a professional and polished performance to a very appreciative audience. The standing ovation at both events was a fitting tribute to the singers' hard work and dedication.
The weekend concerts raised a significant sum, which on this occasion will be donated to Harmony Community Support in Alfoquia (Almeria, Spain).
It is the aim of the choir to support local charities through their singing and performances.
The choir and singers would like to extend a huge thank you, to all who attended and supported these event and especially El Ayuntamiento de Zurgena for allowing us the use of the Teatro Municipal. We would also like to thank our sponsors and ticket outlets: CAT Services, Girasol and Total Entertainment.
A double whammy of events helped F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everone) to raise thousands of €uro's over the last weekend of November.
On the Friday evening [27th Nov], F.A.C.E. organised their now traditional Christmas Market, and on the Sunday afternoon F.A.C.E. organised a Christmas party.
Both events were held in a huge marquee which had been erected in the Arboleas Feria Ground.
On the Friday evening, there were over 50 market stalls selling a wide range of Christmas and other products. In addition support of the event was given by various regional and national charities such as M.A.C.S (Mojacar Area Cancer Support), the A.E.C.C. (Asociación Española Contra El Cáncer), the National Spanish Cancer Charity, and A.L.C.E.R. (Asociación para la Lucha Contra Las Enfermedades del Riñón) a National Spanish Charity that assists people with renal problems.
The event was opened by the Deputy Mayor of Arboleas, Roger Done, accompanied by F.A.C.E. President Adele Wrigglesworth, before F.A.C.E. presented €1,000 to José Fenoy Ibánez of the A.L.C.E.R charity.
Throughout the evening entertainment was provided by the Incognito Singers, a choir of over 20 voices led by Musical Director David Murphy, who on the Friday evening were making their debut public performance. They gave a top quality performance of Christmas music in several different languages and were superb. "Carrie's Dusty Boots" performed Pirates of the Dusty Carrie-bean, to music from the Johnny Depp film Pirates of the Carribean. Colourful costumes. scenery and the use of a smoke machine and above all fabulous dancing, went towards making a fabulous exhibition. Also there was head and beard shaving, tombola, raffles, a bar selling amongst other things F.A.C.E.'s famous mulled wine made to a secret recipe, and many other delights such as mince pies! there was also a hamburger stall. Most importantly of all of course was that Santa Claus was also in attendance.
The Sunday afternoon was a more child orientated event with face painting, fancy dress competition and childrens games. However, once again the Incognito Singers were in attendance, as were "Carrie's Dusty Boots" who did a completely different routine called Snowy White and the Seven Dusty Dwarfs. More importantly though, especially for the children, was that Santa Claus was again in attendance. The F.A.C.E. Grand Christmas Raffle was also drawn during the afternoon, with the €200 First Prize going to Babs Kenningay. A full list of all the Prize Winners can be found on either the F.A.C.E. Facebook Page or on the F.A.C.E. Webpage at
The grand total of money raised over the two events raised an amazing € 3,713.16, although there is still some sponsorship still to be counted.
F.A.C.E. would like to thank all the stall holders, volunteers, sponsors, entertainers and Santa Claus for making these events the success they undoubtedly were.
