The York Military Wives Choir will be performing at Morley Town Hall in April.

The concert is being held in aid of the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Families Association (SSAFA).

The West Yorkshire county chairman of SSAFA, Morley town councillor Terry Grayshon, is hoping the event will benefit SSAFA.

“It is a wonderful opportunity to see the choir and raise money for the cause, especially in the centenary year of World War I,” he said.

Local schools are also getting involved, with Westerton Primary School in Tingley providing their choir and orchestra. Joining them will be the choir of St Peter’s School in Leeds.

Coun Grayshon added: “It is great that the the young people of the community are getting involved as well.”

SSAFA is the he UK’s oldest Tri Service Military Charity and continues to help families of members of the armed forces who have served or are still serving. It holds regular support groups for wives, children, parents and carers of servicemen and women both injured and still serving throughout the country.

The choir is made up of a group of wives and partners of service personnel from York, one of the singers is even a doctor who has served in the army herself.

The choirs will perform on April 27 from 2.30pm-4pm.
