A community choir from Weston-super-Mare performed in a prestigious Somerset location after an invite from the Bishop of Wells.

The Live Love Choir was invited to sing sing at the Bishop’s Palace in Wells after Bishop Peter Hancock took part in the Loss To Addiction Service at All Saints’ Church in Weston in November last year.

The group, which rehearses at All Saints’, has an interest in supporting people affected by addiction, mental health, depression and grief.

The choir’s Wendy Ruddick said: “Singing is very therapeutic and singing together in a choir is great for building confidence, self esteem and having fun.”

The group also performed songs in July to raise £597 for Weston Hospicecare.

The Live Love Choir will perform next at the Your North Somerset event in the Tropicana on Sunday, followed by the Loss To Addiction Service in All Saints’ on November 24.
