Over £500 has been raised for Hope House by Newtown and District Male Voice Choir.

The money was raised at the choir's recent concert in the town, conducted by Sarah Astley-Davies and accompanied by Greg Jenkins, were joined by ‘Two T’s and a Cothi’ – Soprano Shân Cothi and tenors Aled Wyn Davies and Rhys Meirion.

At the end of the concert, a collection was made for Hope House, which raised £585 for the charity. 

Emily Jones, Area Fundraiser for Hope House who attended the concert, 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.”

The choir is always keen to welcome new members. Anyone interested in joining is invited to attend one of their weekly rehearsals, which take place at 7.30pm every Tuesday in the Pryce Jones building. Alternatively, contact the choir's Secretary Claire Hughes by emailing Claire@newtownmalevoicechoir.co.uk.
