Sing! Choirs have raised £11,298 for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity over the last two years.

Managing Director Kathryn Rowland said: “Our most recent cheque presentation from our concert at Tattersalls is for £4,105 which means our overall total is amazing.

“It also takes our amount raised for charities in general so far to over £15,000 in the last three years.

“What was even more touching was a choir member who matched pound for pound the amount we raised – they wanted to say thank you for all the amazing singing and opportunities that the choir brings them.

“I am totally overwhelmed by this, and so grateful that we can give more to such an amazing charity as ARHC.”
