AUDIENCES at two concerts given by the Alveston Singers donated more than £1,244 through collections made at the recent events.

The money was accepted for two charities - the Julian Trust for the homeless and Off the Record, a mental health charity for young people.

It will be shared equally between them, with nothing taken out for choir funds.

The singers perform two spring concerts each year in Alveston and Thornbury, with others held during the run-up to Christmas.

They do not sell tickets for the performances but organise retiring collections for their chosen charities.

A spokeswoman for the group thanked supporters for the donations and said details of the next concerts would be announced nearer the time.

The choir was established 40 years ago and is led by recently appointed conductor, James Davies.
