SINGERS have raised more than £1,000 for charity from a sell-out summer concert.

The Solent Singers choir from Warsash have presented Natalie Bettinson, community fundraiser for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight for Alzheimer’s Society with a cheque for £1,300.

Mrs Bettinson said: ‘This is a huge donation and greatly appreciated by us all at the society. We were thrilled to be picked by the choir as their charity for their summer concert.

‘The money will go directly to support the local services we provide to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight including Singing for the Brain and our Connections Club which is a social club for the under 65s with dementia.’

President of the choir Liz Bennett added: ‘So many people are affected by dementia in later years, sometimes with devastating effects on their families. We are really pleased to have been able to raise this money that we hope will help support the amazing work of Alzheimer’s Society.’
