Churches sing their way to big charity donation

The annual Big Christmas Sing for Christian Aid has raised almost £2,000.
The 9th concert organised by Churches Together in Frampton and Coalpit Heath sees a variety of organisations come together for an evening of music and fundraising.
The concert featured carols and songs from Frampton Cotterell C of E Primary School, Watermore Primary School, The Manor C of E Primary School’s Glee Club, Junior Fascinating Rhythm, Crossbow Singers, Frampton Cotterell Male Voice Choir, RhythmMix & the Frampton Shantymen. There was also a popular return for the ad hoc community choir that comes together for the event each year.
Organiser Alison Bray told the Voice: “This year’s Big Christmas Sing far surpassed our expectations and previous concerts.  £905.18 was raised, which will be doubled as a result of UK Aid to £1810.36; with £116 in Gift Aid so the grand total raised is £1926.36! It’s absolutely amazing. Needless to say, poeple’s support will bring lasting joy to those who will benefit from your kind donations.”
