Charitable concert-goers gave generously for St Nicholas Hospice Care

A choir which travelled more than 100 miles to perform in Bury St Edmunds has raised hundreds of pounds for a local charity.

The Woodstock Chamber Choir, usually based in the Oxfordshire market town of Woodstock, shared their talents with an audience at the United Reformed Church, in Whitling Street, last Saturday (July 28).

The charitable choir decided to use their concert as a fundraising opportunity with the occasion including a retiring collection for St Nicholas Hospice Care, which raised £455.

Miranda McCoy, St Nicholas Hospice Care community fundraiser, said: “Saturday’s concert was sublime.

“The singing was of an extremely high standard indeed, hard to believe they are not all professionals.

“I would also like to sing the praises of the Woodstock Chamber Choir for choosing the hospice to benefit from the retiring collection and thank them all so much for travelling to perform for us.”

The choir, which visits a new location every summer, decided to raise funds for the hospice as they like to be able to give something back to the communities which welcome them to perform.
