The Trelawny Singers are celebrating 25 years with a concert at St Piran's Hall in Goldsithney on Sunday, August 20, at 7pm.

For 25 years the group have raised almost £70,000 for the Children's Hospice South-West and more recently, since it's inception, for Cornwall's own Children's Hospice, Little Harbour in St Austell.

At the concert Alice Merritt, who has just taken over from Mary Murfin as the hospice's community fundraiser, will address the audience on behalf of the group.

The young patients at the hospice designed the album cover of the singers' recently launched CD, Another Day, which will be on sale at the concert.

As a thank you for all the support shown to them by the public over the years, entry to the concert will be free, along with a free pasty supper. There will be a raffle with prizes donated by each group member, and all proceeds will go to Little Harbour.

Special guests for the evening are Jenna and Morwenna Matthews from Penzance, who perform as Twin Harmony, and whose latest album Some Things Are Meant To Be will also be on sale.

Geoff James, The Trelawny Singers' publicity officer, said: "All you have to do is turn up, sit down and enjoy an evening of wonderful entertainment at it's best, for the best of causes."
