Good causes receive share of Cornish Harmony Choir's Christmas Eve collection in Falmouth
FOUR local organisations have each received a share of money raised from singing in the streets of Falmouth.
A total of £1,400 was handed out by the Cornish Harmony Choir, collected during the annual Christmas Eve street performance.
Representatives of the four groups attended a presentation evening at Falmouth Bowling Club, which included music from the Lemonaires and a buffet to raise funds for the choir.
A record number of collectors were on the streets taking donations on Christmas Eve from the appreciative crowds lining the streets.
