The 2015 Choir touched down in London Heathrow on the 14th September and began singing immediately in the airport. From this moment on they couldn’t be stopped! Whether in schools, on the coach, in the streets, backstage or having their lunch the choir never stopped singing and dancing.
During their three and a half weeks touring the UK the choir visited multiple schools across the country to share their musical talent, learn, play, laugh and interact with some very lucky UK children. The choir performed in concert halls, city centres, in Rugby World Cup Fanzones, on TV and radio. Every time this incredibly talented young choir opened their mouths people were stopped in their tracks by their extraordinary talent and infectious smiles.
Thanks to the support from everyone who came to watch, bought their 2016 Tour Album, donated via text or online, offered us your time or venue and especially to those families who opened their homes to look after the children, the choir successfully reached their fundraising target of £20,000 during the tour.
Funds raised from this Choir Tour have been added to by UWE Bristol and The Atlas Foundation, together the money has been used to build a community sports facility within their school grounds.
Reclaiming land owned by the school but previously used by grazing cattle, Project Zulu and Sithobelumthetho have worked together with TurfTech to create a professional sportsfield for use by the school and local community. The extensive project has involved levelling and preparing the site, securing with fencing, installing irrigation systems, laying professional turf, erecting combi-posts and purchasing the necessary mowers and maintenance equipment.
This has been a long awaited project and has faced some challenges along the way, most recently Covid-19 interrupting work on site, however the sportsfield will be launched in August 2021. Once officially opened the field will be used by the school for Physical Education lessons, school sports clubs and tournaments. It will also become the home of the local men’s rugby team, the Madadeni Bears, and available for community sports clubs to hire.
This tour has now ended.
