Did you know, 1 in 4 New Zealand adults will suffer from a mental disorder or distress at some point in their lives? When they do, let’s make sure they never have to go it alone. To create safer, more caring communities we need to not only look after ourselves but those around us as well.

For the month of September, we want to use our voice to raise awareness for mental health and well-being. Perhaps consider sharing a cuppa with someone you know who could use the support or challenge your family and friends to unplug from social media for the entire month to improve their well-being. If you or someone you know is going through a rough patch, don’t forget you can call or text 1737 anytime for FREE support from a trained counsellor.

Don’t forget, this month also coincides with World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10th) followed by Mental Health Awareness Week (23 - 29 September) and Mental Health Awareness Day on October 10th.

However you choose to take part, feel free to tag us in your posts + use the following hashtag so we can see how you’re cultivating better mental health for yourself or in your community this month:

Hi Everyone,
We are enjoying the leadership of our new Music Director, Henry, a young man who joined us in February this year, and who is so easy to work with, and such a great asset to our choir. We recently performed our first concert with Henry, and have had very encouraging feedback from members of the audience on how much they enjoyed the concert.

But, it’s your turn now! How would you like to join our choir, the RISINGHOLME SINGERS, and be part of our “merry band of singers”. Yes, we are a very friendly bunch of people, where all new members are always made very welcome. We are a 4-part non-auditioned community choir of some 28 members, but would like to add to our little group. We are now working on our Christmas concert, and are enjoying every minute.

We are therefore now looking for new members, particularly Tenors, and although it is not essential to be able to read music (although it helps!), as long as you can sing in tune, you would be most welcome to join us, as you would soon learn the music from our very helpful Henry.

We perform two or three concerts a year, and our music mostly consists of well-known pieces from movies, shows, hit records, some classical, etc., all of which we really enjoy singing.

We rehearse in the lounge of the Opawa Baptist Church every Monday evening, from 7.30 p.m. to 9.30 p.m., with a short break in between.

If you would be interested in joining us, and would like to come along at the next Monday evening rehearsal, please feel free to do so.

If you have any questions, please contact our President, Jill Willmott, on 388 3235 or at risingholmesingers@gmail.com
