Choir sings for Welwyn Garden City charity
SHOPPERS in WGC were treated to a spot of live choral music in support of charity.
Staff from Hertfordshire Action on Disability (HAD) were out in force at the Howard Centre, to raise awareness of their work and collect donations.
They were supported in their efforts by Welwyn Harmony Chorus, who performed two sets of songs to attract passers-by.
HAD’s business development manager Linda Cudmore said: “The choir came and they were amazing. They sang a real mixture of songs.
“We had lots of people stopping and talking to us, and we were very lucky to raise �158, which in small change is no mean feat.
