Villagers of all ages were in strong voice to raise money for an international charity.

The two Big Sing events in Widdrington Station took place at Grange View First School and Widdrington Community Centre. They brought in £143.49 and £351 respectively for Christian Aid and a further £59 from Gift Aid was added, making a total of £553.49.

As the Government has promised to match donations to Christian Aid pound for pound under the UK Aid Match Scheme, the grand total for the charity was more than £1,100.
