Singers’ car­ols windfall

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Roundabout -

Ash­ford Cho­ral So­ci­ety’s carol singing ef­forts have raised £1,500 for char­ity. Con­tin­u­ing more than 40 years of tra­di­tion, cho­ral so­ci­ety mem­bers trav­elled around Ash­ford and its sur­round­ing vil­lages in De­cem­ber to sing car­ols and raise funds. In the week be­fore Christ­mas, cho­ris­ters sang by in­vi­ta­tion at venues in­clud­ing East­well Manor at Boughton Lees and Perry Court Farm in Bilt­ing near Wye. Money raised dur­ing th­ese vis­its, as well as the re­tir­ing col­lec­tion at the an­nual carol con­cert held at Ash­ford’s St Mary’s Church on De­cem­ber 21, to­talled £1,500 – nearly £400 more than last year’s ef­forts. The money will be di­vided be­tween Ash­ford Food Bank and Pan­cre­atic Can­cer UK.
