The Hemingford Ladies Choir performed Songs for the Season to raise money for a church appeal.

The choir appeared at St Ives Free Church, in Market Hill, on December 3 and performed a repertoire of festive favourites, including Frosty the Snowman, O Come All Ye Faithful, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, and Ding Dong Merrily on High.

The concert was held to raise funds for the Save our Spire appeal, which launched in January last year.

Supporters of the appeal are hoping to raise £55,000 for essential restorative work on its spire, including concrete work and stonework repairs.

The choir holds its weekly rehearsals at the Free Church and said it was “delighted” to get involved with the appeal.
