A CHOIR performance on Christmas Eve in Falmouth raised over £1,000 for four local charities.

The Cornish Harmony Choir event raised £1,100 from donations on the day – the 113th year of the annual event – when the 150-strong choir sang at various locations throughout the town.

The figure will be made up to £1,200 by choir funds and divided equally among four local recipients: Falmouth Stroke Club; Mission to Seafarers; Falmouth Town Council and Falmouth Age Concern’s volunteer befriending service.

The choir’s chairman Ron Medlyn said: “If we didn’t have the council behind us there would not be a choir.

“They provided all the barriers and the people to man them, plus organising the licenses for the money collectors and the singers, plus the staff to count the money.

“Without them we would be struggling.”

The £400 cheques will be presented to each organisation at a ceremony on February 1 at Falmouth Bowling Club at 7.30pm.

Treverva Male Voice Choir will give a performance. There will also be a raffle and refreshments. Everyone is welcome.
