More than £1,200 was raised for a pair of charities at The Dalesmen Singers Male Voice Choir’s annual gala night.

The choir performed to a full house at Danby Methodist Chapel and sang a number of old favourites, including a medley of World War One songs.

Guest performer and star of the night was highly-acclaimed soprano Bethan Williams and her accompanist John Bradbury.

Although based in London, Bethan has a strong affinitity with the nort, having gained a degree in Music from The University of York and has performed as a soloist with many choirs across the UK.

Her joint pieces with the Dalesmen were ‘I Believe’ and ‘Serenade’ by Franz Schubert.

A supper and raffle followed in Danby Village Hall and the total amount raised by the gala amounted to £1,256.

Representatives from Cheshire Homes, Marske and the Esk Moors Active Heather Hopper mini bus were on hand to receive their cheques at the finale.

The Dalesmen Singers are holding a quiz night, followed by pie and pea supper – including sweet – at Moorsholm Village Hall on November 21 at 7pm.

All welcome to enter, as a team or as individuals.

Tickets for the quiz are available from Don Smith on (01287) 660574.
