Last week, Grahame Jackson, president of Dunbar Choral, presented a cheque for £650 to Judy Greenwood, president of Dunbar Rotary Club, who explained that the singers’ donation is destined to support the work of Edinburgh Direct Aid.

Judy added: “This charity is a local and well-established organisation which does much-needed relief work for Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Lesbos, Croatia and Munich. I am confident that because the charity operates mainly with the use of volunteers, that all the money raised will be used to convey supplies from Edinburgh directly to the refugees with virtually nothing wasted on administration”.

She thanked Grahame and all who had performed and bought concert tickets.
