A CHESHIRE choir raised their voices to raise over £2,500 for Chester’s leading homeless charity, Chester Aid to the Homeless (CATH), in their latest concert.

The Decibellas, a choir for upper voices based in Tarporley, raised £2554 for CATH by selling tickets for their concert at St Boniface Church in Bunbury as well as passing round a donation bucket.

Robert Whittall, CEO of CATH, said: “Chester Aid to the Homeless offers support, encouragement and a safety net to those in crisis. Our services include a day centre, medical services and supported accommodation for homeless people in the city.

“Donations and community fundraising are an essential part of our income which helps us to provide the level and range of services we do, so we are very grateful for the amazing generosity and support from Decibellas choir and concert audience”.

The charity was founded by a team of volunteers in 1972 to help and support Chester’s homeless community. Since starting, it has become a leading homeless charity in Chester and continues to provide a wide range of services to those in need.
