Burnham’s Siobhan Johnson Singers held their annual Christmas carol concert to raise money for local children’s charity In Charley’s Memory.

The group included vocalists from Burnham On Song and Burnham Youth Choir, who thoroughly entertained a full congregation and raised the roof at St Andrew’s Church, in Victoria Street.

£442 was raised for the charity which was supported and attended by former MP Tessa Munt.

It was an evening full of festive songs, with all performers in fine voices, including Burnham’s young elite junior solo singers Emily Thomas, Evelyn Rowland, Leah Norton, Grace Holman and on her debut solo performance as the youngest member of the group, Grace Baker.

Burnham Youth Choir rounded the evening off well with their traditional, entertaining and ever popular rendition of Twelve Days of Christmas, bringing the congregation to their feet.
