Whitchurch Young Farmers Club made sure three charities were better off over Christmas when they collected hundreds of pounds from their carol singing.

Members came together in the week leading up to the big day to entertain pub-goers and members of the public with a rendition of some of the best carols of the season.

Over the two nights, the members helped raise £458.80 for their three charities of choice, and even encouraged guests to join in with the singing.

Flossie Littlefair, club press officer, was delighted with both the turnout from club members and the support from the members of the public.

“We had about 30 people there on both nights,” she said.

“It was a great to see so many people and shows how well the club is supported at these types of events.

“Our charity carol singing night was in support of our three charities for 2019: Nightingale House Hospice; Birmingham Children’s Hospital; and Mind, who we will be supporting over the next 12 months.

“I would like to thank the local businesses and pubs who allowed us to come in and sing, as well as families across the area who hosted us too.

“As we enter 2019, I urge anyone interested in joining the club to get involved with us and contact us.”
