Singers and folk musicians fundraised to the tune of £380 for the Dorothy House Hospice throughout December.

On every Sunday in December, the Bradford on Avon Carollers visited a pub to carry out their tradition and finished in the Canal Tavern on the Sunday before Christmas.

Committee member Nick Nicholls plays the melodeon, and was one of seven who set it up four years ago.

He said: “There is a real mixture of songs. Some are familiar in words but different in tune and some had become more or less dormant.

“This tradition makes sure the songs will live on. It is well established now and full of fun.”
