PEMBROKESHIRE'S Singing for Fun groups have a busy Christmas season lined up with four north Pembrokeshire fundraising concerts during the festive season as well as other community carol singing events.

The fun community choirs have so far raised more than £5,000 for charity since the summer, including £2,400 for children affected by the Grenfell Tower disitaer to have a week's respite in Pembrokeshire.

The first of the four Christmas concerts takes place this Friday, December 8, at Fishguard's Bethel Baptist Church in West Street.

The concert starts at 3pm and all money raised will go to Fishguard's Rainbow Support Centre.

The following day the singers will be at St Mary's Church, Newport, with a 3pm concert in aid of Wales Air Ambulance.

On Sunday, December 10, singers will raise funds for the Wales Air Ambulance at 2.30pm in Letterston Memorial Hall, Station Road. There will also be a raffle and refreshments at this event.

The last of the four concerts is on Monday, December 11, at 7.30pm in Solva Memorial Hall in aid of Shalom.

All four hour-long concerts promise a real variety of pieces, including folk and church music in Welsh, English, Latin and Zulu, with many opportunities for the audience to join in.

They are free to attend, with retiring bucket collections for the chosen charities.

Singing for fun is also leading carol-singing sessions at Solva Woollen Mill's Christmas Fayre, the Sartori Volunteers' Party, Llain Las, the Fishguard Gateway Club, Moylegrove's village social and St Bride's Castle.

"These events couldn't happen without the willingness of so many singers, drawn from six different groups, to give up their time and raise their voices to help local good causes," said musical director Anne Hughes.

"We are still reeling from having raised £2,400 for the Grenfell Tower holiday and a total since June of £5035, a truly remarkable amount, which is tribute to the generosity of Pembrokeshire audiences."
