Popular choir Voices in Harmony sang out on Saturday in support of a charity that helps families with problems.
Members of the choir sang under the Christmas tree in Nicholsons Walk, Maidenhead, to raise awareness of the charity Family Friends, which offers support to families with children up to the age of 13 in the Royal Borough who need help at times of stress or illness. Volunteers visit families in their homes offering help and support.
Asma Aziz, from the charity which is based in Windsor, said: "We have 35 volunteers but it is not enough when you realise we help 550 children a year from 350 families."
Accompanying the choir was Freda the hippo, the charity's mascot.
Anyone who would like to volunteer can contact the charity on 0300 800 1005 or email www.family-friends.org.uk
