Inverness’s acclaimed military wives choir has hit all the right notes by raising more than £6,000 for charitable causes.
More than 500 residents from across the Highlands congregated at Inverness Cathedral on Armistice weekend to listen to the group during their two-day ‘Centenary of Song’ concert commemorating the end of the First World War.
The evenings donations are to be divided between three charities close to their hearts including armed forces charities Poppyscotland and the Royal British Legion Scotland and highland charity Mikeysline; with each foundation receiving £2060.
Cathedral concert co-ordinator Tracey Walsh said: “We are absolutely delighted with the support we have received from the local community and the Highland Council.
“It’s that support that has enabled us to smash last year’s total raised and donate money to three wonderful charities.
“It’s such an honour to be able to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War in such a beautiful location as Inverness Cathedral. It was lovely to be back there again this year, and we are so very grateful to the Very Rev Sarah Murray and her hard-working team for allowing us to use the cathedral again this year.
“Both evenings were extremely well attended. It was a bit of a gamble doing two nights, but thankfully the people of Inverness and the Highlands got behind us and the charities, with in excess of 500 people attending over the two nights.”
