Pontypool front row supports town choir
7:10am Thursday 4th October 2012 in News
FOR the first time since the 1970s’ golden era of Welsh rugby the legendary Pontypool front row are back together.
But this time they are teaming up for a cause just as synonymous with Wales as our national side – a male voice choir.
Bobby Windsor, Graham Price and Tony Faulkner are now patrons of the Pontypool Male Choir and have vowed to do all they can to support it.
The 32-chorister choir is currently looking for sponsorship from local people and businesses, which is vital to safeguarding its future.
With its 50th anniversary looming next year, spokesman Mark Pitt made it a priority getting on board the three names that put the town on the map.
After contacting them, he said: “The town is synonymous with the world-famous Pontypool front row, so I wanted to approach Graham Price, Bobby Windsor and Tony Faulkner to spearhead, support and champion our choir.
“The guys in the choir will be over the moon.”
Bobby Windsor, who now lives in Mallorca, said: “It’s a marvellous cause and I can’t wait to see them. I’ll do anything to help promote them as long as its not singing.”
The choir rehearses every Tuesday, 7pm until 9pm, at Panteg House sports and social club, Griffithstown.
