The members of the Bella Voce choir in Delgany have donated €1600 to local charity Triple A Alliance after a successful Christmas concert in Christ Church. The Triple A Alliance is a support group for those living with autism and organises a wide range of events, some for parents and family members and others aimed at children and young people, for its members every year.

Explaining why they had chosen to donate the money to Triple A, Gillian Peelo of the Bella Voce choir said it was a charity which was close to the hearts of the choir and, as a local service, one they wanted to help in whatever way they could. Although its next big performance is not until the summer, Gillian said the choir were always on the look out for new members and that those interested in joining were welcome to attend its weekly rehearsal nights in Christ Church every Thursday evening at 8 p.m.
