A sell-out performance by Newtown Male Voice Choir has raised more than £2,000 for charity.

The choir recently performed in a sell-out concert to celebrate St David’s Day at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury, where they shared the stage with Oswestry’s Orthopaedic Male Voice Choir.

Also taking part in the concert were two young musicians from North Wales, soprano Tesni Jones and harpist Angharad Huw.

The concert was arranged by the North Wales Association of Male Voice Choirs, and was in aid of Hope House.

The choir, conducted by Christine Roberts and Isobel Clare and accompanied by Sarah Astley-Davies, performed a selection of popular songs, including a number of traditional Welsh favourites, to the sell-out crowd.

Emily Jones, Area Fundraiser for Hope House said: “We are so grateful to be receiving a donation off the back of this concert as we rely on fundraising in and by the community for over 80 per cent of our annual need, which last year was £6.3 million.

"At present we are only able to afford to offer our help to 1 in 3 local families that need us. Our aim is to increase our annual fundraising to £10 million every year so that we can offer our services to every single family that suffers the death of a child.”

Newtown Male Voice Choir’s next performance will be their annual concert, which takes places at Newtown’s Baptist Chapel on Sunday, 13th May.

They will be joined by guest artistes Rhys Meirion, Aled Wyn Davies and Shân Cothi.

Tickets for the concert cost £15 each and are available now by phoning Eifion Astley on 01686 627360, Dai Davies on 01686 626267 or email
