Sing out choir’s cash donation

FORMER St Helens mayor John Beirne presented a cheque for £600 to Willowbrook Hospice alongside fundraising members of his celebration choir.

The town centre councillor and his pop/gospel choir have been performing knockout shows all over town to raise vital funds for the local hospice.

And, after a sell-out show at Sutton’s Welsh Chapel, they presented Willowbrook’s Diane Humphreys with the cheque outside the charity’s town centre fundraising shop.

Councillor Beirne, who represents the town centre ward, said: “The choir goes around town raising money for Willowbrook so it was a pleasure to present a cheque for this amount.

“I’d like to say a big ‘well done’ to the choir - young and old - for their hard work and commitment.”
