The money was raised at the choir’s December Messiah concert in the Royal Hall and continues an initiative begun as part of the choir’s 70th anniversary celebrations in the 2017-2018 season to support other local charities.

Choir Co-chairman Amy Wall said: “We are a registered charity ourselves and we are delighted to be able to continue supporting other charities by donating £1 for each ticket sold at every concert, augmented by the generosity of our audiences.”

So far the choir has raised £2,675 and helped six charities – Time Together, HELP, Our Angels, Crossroads, Disability Action Yorkshire and Supporting Older People. Any other charity which would like to discuss the choir supporting their work, can contact them at [email protected]

The next concert in the Royal Hall on March 23 will support the Mayor’s charity.
