Musical tribute to Deborah

MUSICAL: The Singing For Pleasure choir

SINGING For Pleasure performed a special concert in memory of Deborah Judah at the community centre on Sunday.

Choir member Helen Lewis appealed for more people to join the choir and praised Joan and Mike Stevens for the incredible work they do in running Singing For Pleasure.

She added that if anyone was thinking of slowing down when they reached the age of 80, they should look no further than the example set by Joan and Mark.

Helen also praised the volunteering work of Melvyn Sumroy for the Leeds Jewish Welfare Board.

She paid tribute to Deborah, Melvyn and his wife Pam’s late daughter, who “put in an enormous amount of work to raise awareness of bowel cancer and who absolutely understood that to save one life is to save a whole world”.

She added that while Deborah was ill, she spent her precious time campaigning, speaking and also filming an inspiring video for the Welfare Board.

The choir presented a variety of old favourites such as Yerushalayim Shel Zahav and Gershwin’s Summertime.

Elaine Green played a medley of favourites on the violin, while Barney Tabor showed his expertise on piano, leaving Morton Shapero to entertain on the harmonica.
