That the Parliament pays tribute to the Springfield Cambridge Festival Chorus and Orchestra on raising a phenomenal £390,000 to date for CHAS; understands that concerts by the 160-strong choir from Bishopbriggs are normally held in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall; praises the commitment and innovation of its musical director and members in organising and promoting its 20th annual concert, which was broadcast digitally at Christmas 2020 and raised £20,000 through donations; thanks the members of the public for attending the show remotely and supporting CHAS during these challenging times, and hopes that the members of the choir can continue to spread happiness and joy through their activities.
