Trustees & friends

I am interested in how we hear the voice of choir members and volunteers, and incorporate their views into how we grow and develop as a charity to reach new people and communities.

For me, the choir’s beauty lies in it’s simplicity – bringing together people who’ve experienced homelessness or are socially isolated to share in the joy of singing.

I have never been much of a singer, in fact my kids regularly ask me to stop one or two bars into whichever 80s rock ballad I attempt around the house.

I was a member of the original Choir with No Name in 2008. Now I am keen to be on the board to ensure that the members' perspective is heard.

CWNN has always been a source of inspiration and joy for me, first as an audience member, then as a volunteer, and then finally as a director of one of the choirs.

When I heard about the Choir With No Name, I knew immediately the impact it would have by giving people the opportunity to sing together. I've been a fan ever since. 

When I heard about The Choir With No Name I was impressed by the clarity and simplicity of vision of Marie and her team. 

I grew up in Liverpool, and first heard of The Choir With No Name after seeing the Liverpool choir perform at Light Night in the city several years ago.


We live in tough times and to see our choir members having the most fun with the volunteers can't fail to keep me motivated and energised.
