Water singers raise hundreds
HUNDREDS of pounds have been raised for charity by tuneful singers in Portishead.
More than 50 choir members performed in the town’s High Street before taking part in a special concert at the Methodist church to collect cash for WaterAid.
In the High Street, passers-by were treated to renditions of Moon River, Love Can Build A Bridge and Sit Down.
The fundraising efforts were organised by Wendy Sergeant, who runs a number of singing groups in Portishead, Pill and Clevedon, and resulted in �263 being collected.
This will be added to the �20,000 already collected during Sing for Water West, which featured 1,000 singers and was held in Bristol the previous week to raise money for WaterAid. It is hoped the total amount of sponsorship will reach �50,000 once collected.
WaterAid is an international charity working to provide safe domestic water to some of the world’s poorest people.
