The Farmers and Farmers Wives Choir will follow up on their successful run on Sunday, December 4, at 6.30pm, when they perform at Crichton Church in Dumfries, in aid of RHET Dumfries and Galloway.

The choirs were formed in September 2013 as a one off performance in the ‘Scottish Young Farmers 75th Anniversary Concert’ which was held in the Hydro Arena, Glasgow in November of that year, and such was their success that there is now more than 100 choir members who come from far and wide to rehearse in Lanark, Perthshire, Berwick, Fife, Lanarkshire, Ayrshire, and Dumfries & Galloway.

Performances from the choirs have helped raised money for many charities over the years and this year it is the Royal Highland Education Trust's Dumfries and Galloway region, which will receive any profits. RHET's aim is to educate children from 3-18 years, the length and breadth of the region, on food, farming and the countryside.

The choirs will also be performing in a fund raising event for the Ayrshire Hospice in Kilmarnock Grand Hall in Kilmarnock on Sunday, November 27.

For tickets, which are £10, contact Lorraine Mair, Townhead Farm, Mouswald, Dumfries DG1 4LU for details. The audience will be greeted with mulled wine and nibbles and
