The Ynysowen Welsh Voice Choir, based in Aberfan, South Wales, is to perform at the Church of St Mary the Virgin, in Cavendish, with funds raised from the event going to St Nicholas Hospice Care.

The concert has been organised by Cavendish Community Council and is to take place on Saturday, June 30.

Tickets cost £10 and include a glass of wine during the interval. The performance starts at 7.30pm.

The event takes place every two years, with match funding from Barclays bank enabling Cavendish Community Council to support the hospice, which cares for those across West Suffolk and Thetford in the final chapters of their lives.

Tickets are available from the village store or by telephoning Mike Ward on 01787 281903.
