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.
