AN ORGANISATION has benefitted from the Basingstoke Ladies' Choir Christmas concert.

Last year's event was run in aid of the 'Holiday@Home' project, run by St Joseph's RC church.

A cheque for £347 was presented to Alfredo Lavorgna and Eileen Mavoigna, the founders and organisers of St Joseph's Holiday@Home, by representatives from the choir.

They were joined by the Mayor of Basingstoke, Cllr Seán Keating, who gave a talk about his role before taking part in a tea.

A total of £50 was also raised at the concert in a retiring collection.

The St. Joseph's Holiday@Home Team provides a meeting place every two months on a Tuesday afternoon for people who are isolated, elderly or disabled of any denomination in the local community where they can socialise.
