Local Choir Create Sweet Harmonies for Hospice
Fundraising events in aid of Butterwick Hospice Care always go well when the people participating in the event really enjoy what they do.
A local choral society proved how well this theory worked when they raised a very welcome donation to the care provided by Butterwick House to young people and their families across the region.
Billingham Choral Society raised £516.17 from their Christmas events for Butterwick House Hospice for babies, children and young adults.
Accompanist, Stuart Pass, raised an additional £700 when he decided to take part in the Butterwick beards campaign last November. The campaign encourages men to be sponsored to grow a beard. Stuart, 3rd from the right in the back row in the photo, was so pleased with the result he decided to keep his beard.
