Members of a male voice choir in Derbyshire have been entertaining shoppers with festive songs.
Alfreton Male Voice Choir visited Co-op in Ripley on Saturday (December 16) for the Yuletide entertainment which saw the group raising more than £370 for charity.
A spokesman for the choir said: “A Christmas Saturday saw the Choir entertaining shoppers whilst supporting the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
“The choir sang a medley of Christmas carols and songs with a rousing finale of Sweet Caroline, Slades Merry Christmas.”
Pat Churnside of BHF told the choir: “It was lovely to see you all again this morning, and we really appreciate you asking us to collect with Alfreton Male Voice Choir again.
“I am very pleased to be able to tell you that we raised £373 this morning.
“Thank you again for enabling us to collect such a fantastic amount. We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.”
