A South Cheshire choir raised more than £2,500 for Chester’s homeless charity, Chester Aid to the Homeless (CATH), at their last gig.
Decibellas, a choir for upper voices based in Tarporley, raised £2,554 for CATH through ticket sales and a bucket drive at their concert at St Boniface’s Church in Bunbury.
The charity was chosen by the 75 choir members who voted from a list of nominated causes.
Robert Whittall, CEO of CATH, who spoke at the concert, said: “Chester Aid to the Homeless provides support, encouragement and a safety net for people in crisis.
“Our services include a drop-in centre, medical services and supported accommodation for homeless people in the city.
“Donations and community fundraising are a vital part of our income, which helps us to provide the level and range of services we offer, so we are very grateful for the incredible generosity and support of the choir. Decibellas and the concert audience.”
CATH was founded by a team of volunteers in 1972 to provide help and support to Chester’s homeless community.
It has grown over four decades to become a leading homeless charity in the city of Chester, providing a wide range of services.
