THERE is just so much brilliant musical talent in Greytown as was seen and heard last Saturday night when over 200 guests attended the”For a trip to Wales” fundraiser event at the Beehive.

Members of the KZN Midlands Youth Choir, the Jonker sisters, Chantal and Monique, are raising funds to travel with the choir to Wales next month.Together with their mother Ankia, and aunt, they brought an enthralled audience to its feet with their beautiful voices as they sang a range of musical treats.

The level of talent in Greytown is amazing. Setting the tone for the enjoyable evening the opening act was newly formed local band The Disproportionate Dogooders, Renier van Rooyen, CG Nefdt, Phila Mnguni and Riaan Swanepoel (all of Wembley College). There was a further treat as Amoré van Rooyen­ sang a duet with Monique Jonker. Amoré, Renier and CG are also part of the KZN Midlands Youth choir who will be travelling to Wales, Milla Herbst is also part of the youth choir, but unfortunately she was not able to attend the evening due to a prior commitment.

Adding to the evening’s fun local auctioneer, Bobby Pearson, raised laughs and money with items donated by , Chubby Chicken “Patricia” the blonde, family photo-shoots from Divan Kamffer, wooden cheese board and a 40-year- old bottle of Johnny Walker, and there were also a number of lucky draw prizes from local businesses. 
Organiser of this very special event, Ankia Jonker told the Greytown Gazette: “The support from the Greytown community was overwhelming and 200 people attended on the night to assist in sending the girls to Wales. There were generous donations from a very kind and caring community.”
