BRINGING the festive spirit to Shoreham, the Towers Convent Choir raised £1000 for charity singing carols in the Holmbush Centre last Saturday.

The choir and orchestra which were made up of 80 year 7 to 11 pupils spent the day fundraising for Brighton and Worthing homeless projects singing a range of cheery Christmas songs.

The money will be divided between St Thomas fund for the homeless, St Anne’s Day Centre Worthing, Churches Homeless Projects and Off the Fence and The Emmaus Centre.

Harp player, Chloe Ellman-Baker, said: “It was an amazing atmosphere and very busy and it made everyone smile.

“The highlight was watching the public enjoying our carols, joining in and generously contributing to our collection for the homeless charities.

“Everyone was excited to perform and sing and bring the true meaning of Christmas across.”
