The glorious sound of a cathedral choir will fill a Suffolk church to raise money for stroke survivors.

Support group Success After Stroke is holding its annual carol concert at Holy Trinity Church in Long Melford on December 2.

This year’s concert is called Advent by Candlelight and leading the singing will be Ely Cathedral Choir, directed by Paul Trepte with organist Edmund Aldhouse.

The music will be complemented by readings from Patricia Eddington, widow of actor Paul Eddington, Jonathan Tham, son of actress Jenny Agutter, and Mark Murphy, from BBC Radio Suffolk.

Two members of Success After Stroke – Viv Hatfield and Alan Tapfield – will also give readings.

Stroke survivors attend the charity’s sessions in Great Cornard Stevenson Centre to socialise, and take part in activities like art classes. Physio and speech therapies are among the services available.

Tickets for the concert, which starts at 7pm, cost £15 for adults and £5 for under 12s, and are available from Viv Bourne on 01449 736901 or Barbara Slade on 01449 740963.
