It was standing room only at two recent concerts by a community choir which has raised hundreds of pounds for church projects.

A Handful of Harmonies, which has members from across the area and practice in Stamford, Bourne, Langtoft and Market Deeping, performed at Langtoft Church and St Guthlacs in Market Deeping with a 70-strong choir.

The women’s choir received a standing ovation in Langtoft where they raised about £500 for Langtoft Church Restoration Fund.

At Market Deeping they performed their latest piece of work which was a medley of the songs from the stage and film hit Les Miserables.

The concert raised more than £1,000 for tower project at St Guthlacs Church.

Choir member Sue Ward said: “Members of the audience were emotionally moved by several of the pieces. One comment was that the choir came in all shapes and sizes and ages, but the sound they make is beautiful.”

The Harminies, the junior version of the choir, also performed their songs as part of the concerts.
