HOMELESS people are being given a helping hand by Warwick-based choir Village Voices.

The choir have chosen the Salvation Army Way Ahead Project as the charity they will support this year. Funds raised will go towards helping those who are homeless or suffer from addiction or mental health problems.

The first of the choir’s charity concerns, featuring musical favourites, is at St Nicholas Church on Saturday, starting at 7.30pm.

Charity spokesman Jonathan Chilvers said: “It’s brilliant Village Voices are generously giving their profits this year to the project.

“The money will go to support people in the area who are homeless or with addictions to find accommodation and turn their lives around. We’re here for people every step of the way, no matter where they’re at.”

Tickets cost £8 on the door.

A MUSIC festival will be hitting all the right notes for Myton Hospice.

The free ‘Whitstock’ festival will be held at the Plough and Harrow in Whitnash on the weekend of May 28 and 29.

Some 20 local bands will be performing and all proceeds raised will go to Myton Hospice.
