Christmas sing-a-long raises £1,000 for Thames Hospice

More than £1,000 was raised for Thames Hospice at a charity sing-a-long at Ye Olde Swan in Burnham on Sunday.

Singers from Burnham Football Club, staff from the pub and the pub's pool team sang Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas? at the High Street venue.

The pub was packed with more than 190 people and some of the football players even showcased their acapella vocals.

Donna Levene, event organiser, said: "The team all sang, we had locals, the Saturday and Sunday football team singing and the group ranged from 18-75.

"They've been having rehearsals in the pub every Tuesday for the last six weeks.

"We put on a big spread of food for the Christmas party and raised money for Thames Hospice."

"Children went round with charity buckets during the singing and we think we've raised over £1,000."
