Choir in fine voice to boost cause

A LEADING dementia charity is among the recipients from a caring Vale village.

Alzheimer’s Research UK was given £185 from a village Christmas Fayre at Abbots Morton Village Hall, the second such event to be held there for the charity.

Zoe Baggott, regional fund-raising officer for Alzheimer’s Research UK, said: “We’re so grateful to Abbots Morton village hall for supporting Alzheimer’s Research UK once again.

“Dementia affects a significant proportion of the population – one in three people more than 65 in the UK will die with some form of the condition.

“Fantastic fund-raising efforts like this will help us to make life-changing research breakthroughs for people with dementia.”

The Vale Harmony Barbershop Chorus raised £163 for Prostate Cancer UK at the Worcester Victorian Fayre

The male a cappella chorus raised the money as they sang a medley of Christmas carols for an hour in the Crowngate Shopping Centre.

Colin Pemberton, from the Pershore-based Vale Harmony, said: “Prostate Cancer UK is our chosen charity this year and we’re delighted to have had such an amazing response from the public to help them in their vital work.”
