A CHARITY helping to tackle loneliness and isolation is to benefit from a fundraising carolthon in the Eastgate Shopping Centre.

About 80 members of Inverness Choral Society took part in the annual six-hour challenge to raise thousands of pounds which will be divided between their own organisation and Befrienders Highland.

Carol Brown, joint organiser of the event with Kate Currie, said people had given generous donations and the final total would be revealed in the new year.

“Befrienders Highland was a lovely charity to work with and they had clients as well as their own volunteers for the collection on the day – it was nice they had managed to do that,” Ms Brown said.

“It is one of the lesser-known charities so we were pleased to work with them.”

The singers were conducted by Gordon Tocher and Sheila Bruce.
