The Covid-19 pandemic didn’t stop local singers playing their part in raising vital funds for two charities.

Members of the Castle Belles joined with the Counterpoint Choir for “The Feel Good Festival Virtual Concert”, a celebration of music which was streamed online and raised £1,000 which was split between Mind UK and Montgomeryshire Family Crisis Centre, North Powys’ domestic abuse support services.

“A pandemic won’t stop us performing and singing,” said organisers Elaine Buckland and Grace Gull in a joint statement. “We are all extremely pleased that such a fantastic total was raised for two amazing charities, both of which are in particular need in these challenging times. Thank-you to all who partook on the night and of course everyone who bought tickets.”

Jane Stephens, General Manager for Montgomeryshire Family Crisis Centre, said: “Thank-you to all who helped make the event possible and for raising £500 for each cause. All the money donated to Montgomeryshire Family Crisis Centre will go towards supporting men, women and children who are experiencing domestic abuse.

“This event is a true example of on-line communities coming together to support those in need.”
