Concert’s cash bonus

The Solent Singers at the Action on Hearing Loss Musical Extravaganza evening.

MUSIC A FUNDRAISING evening was music to the ears of the Action on Hearing Loss charity.

The Solent Singers headlined the Action on Hearing Loss Musical Extravaganza evening at Newport’s Salvation Army Hall.

The 70-strong audience also enjoyed lively guitar, drums and songs from Faye Williams and Friends, followed by volunteer Ray Felton’s gripping monologue.

The Salvation Army Timbrel group entertained with four routines, combining movement, sound and grace, while the chiming tones of Brighstone Handbells had the audience singing along to My Grandfather’s Clock.

Home-made cakes were enjoyed in the interval and £430 was raised for the charity’s Island Befriending Service.

IW service manager Ann Emery said: "It was lovely to see so many people enjoying themselves while raising funds for our befriending service.

"We regularly visit 21 people in their homes and hold four monthly befriending coffee mornings across the Island to help reduce isolation and loneliness.

"These funds will help us continue to make a real difference."
