The charity supports children who have lost a parent while serving in the armed forces.

Audience members packed St John’s Church in Polegate for the Christmas concert – Mistletoe and Melodies – and even joined in with some of the songs on the night.

Organisers hailed the concert a ‘great success’.

The musical director was Louise Morris, assistant director Margaret Marsden, accompanist Tim Naill and solo baritone singer Christopher Dixon.

Choir soloists were Shirley McCann, Lucy Smith, and Nigel Lawson.

The choir, which is based in Polegate, has around 50 members and is open to any member of the public who ‘has a love of music and a desire to sing’.
