Choir defies cold for charity

December 24, 2007

BETWEEN 30 and 40 members of Malvern Festival Chorus braved bitter cold on Saturday to sing to town centre shoppers.

The choir members gathered outside Waitrose in Edith Walk and sang favourite carols including The First Noel, Hark the Herald Angels Sing and We Wish You A Merry Christmas.

"My feet were like ice, but we raised £260 towards our charity this year, which is Chernobyl Children," said Marion Couson of the choir.

A small group of choir members will be singing at the Cottage in the Wood hotel, Malvern Wells, on Christmas Eve, at the request of proprietor John Pattin.

And Thursday, December 27, Malvern Festival Chorus is holding its Carols For All concert at Great Malvern Priory, starting at 3pm.

Collections will be taken at both these events for Chernobyl Children.
