A Christmas gift of song for Hospice

Supporters of Winscombe Community Choir dug deep for Weston Hospicecare this Christmastime when they came together for the choir’s annual charity concert.


The festive event – which was held on Saturday 13th December – raised £2,000 for the Hospice by way of ticket sales and raffle prizes.


Sidcot Meeting Rooms was packed with generous locals and MP John Penrose who came out to watch the popular choir perform alongside a full band.


Member of Winscombe Community Choir, Joanne Carr, 26, of Weston-super-Mare, delivered a very moving speech about her mother Lyn who was cared for by Weston Hospicecare before performing a solo piece.


The concert marks the latest Winscombe event held in aid of the Hospice, who announced last year that they have plans to move the organisation into Kildare House – formerly Mooseheart HQ – in several years time.
