A POP choir's first solo concert has raised almost £500 for the Paul Sartori Foundation.

The Aftertones performed at Pennar Hall, Pembroke Dock, on November 17, clocking up a grand total of £455.

Singing a variety of hits, from Beyonce and Take That to Fleetwood Mac, the choir was set up by music director Helen Boyce and her friends and colleagues.

Their first public performance was at the Mercury Talent Show for Paul Sartori last October.

Receiving the cheque on behalf of the charity was community fundraiser Toni Dorkings.

Added registered nurse Lynn Hunter: "We are very grateful that The Aftertones chose to support the Paul Sartori Hospice at Home with their first ever solo concert.

"We wish them all the success in the future.”

Thanks also went to Pennar Hall committee, which donated the use of the hall free of charge for the show.

If you fancy joining The Aftertones on stage next time, they are looking for new members.

Anyone over-18 is welcome to join, and the choir meets on a Tuesday evening at Pennar Hall,from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.

The Paul Sartori hospice at home service provides a range of services to Pembrokeshire people living in the final stages of a life limiting illness, including home nursing care, equipment loan, complementary therapy, bereavement and counselling support, clinical nurse specialist in palliative care, physiotherapy, advance care planning and training.
