A choir travelled more than 100 miles to perform in Bury St Edmunds to raise money for a charity based in the west Suffolk town.

The Woodstock Chamber Choir, from Woodstock, Oxfordshire, took to the stage at the United Reformed Church in Whiting Street on Saturday, July 28.

The concert raised £455 through a retiring collection for Bury St Edmunds-based St Nicholas Hospice Care.

The choir visits a new location every summer and raise funds for causes in the communities who welcome them to perform.

Miranda McCoy, community fundraiser at St Nicholas Hospice Care, said: “Saturday’s concert was sublime.

“The singing was of an extremely high standard indeed, hard to believe they are not all professionals.

“I would also like to sing the praises of the Woodstock Chamber Choir for choosing the hospice to benefit from the retiring collection and thank them all so much for travelling to perform for us.”
