Treorchy Male Choir's first visit to the Channel Island of Guernsey was the result of a long association between Musical Director Jeff Howard and Roy Sarre BEM, the Musical Director of the Festiva Choir. The multi-denominational Christian choir from Guernsey was celebrating its 30 th anniversary and Roy, along with his wife Maddie, planned the Treorchy's visit to the island as part of their year of festivities. The three-day venture was supported by Festiva's patron, Dame Mary Perkins, who along with her husband Doug, founded the international Specsavers optician chain more than 30 years ago. It was a unique privilege for the men of Treorchy to enjoy such an outstanding welcome from a genuinely lovely group of individuals.
