A group have come together to form a choir which will be making fund-raising appearances around the area.
Forth Valley Countryside Initiative branch of RHET – Royal Highland Educational Trust – has been practising under the baton of choir master Alistair Warwick.
Called RHET Factor, they are ready to head out carol singing and will be appearing: November 16, Dobbies, Stirling, 5-7pm; November 18, Dobbies, Stirling, 2-4pm (guest appearance of Vallerie the singing cow); November 24, Smiddy, Blairdrummond 5-7pm , and December 9, Dobbies, Stirling, 2-4pm (guest appearance of Vallerie singing cow).
RHET was established in 1999 and provides free resources, farm visits and classroom speakers allowing children to learn more about Scottish farming, food and countryside.
In the 2016-2017 academic year, RHET Forth Valley organised 50 farm visits, 63 classroom speakers and a food and farming event for P6 pupils.
Money raised from the carol singing will be used help pay transport costs of children travelling to RHET events.
