LAST month (May) Vice Chairman of Côr Curiad choir Pat Hodgson, who is 71 years of age, completed a Wing Walk for charity.

It involved her being strapped into a harness on top of a bi-plane and being flown around the beautiful Cirencester area, while the pilot did some very daredevil moves.

She did this challenge in aid of Marie Curie Wales, and even had the experience as a Christmas and birthday gift from her family, ensuring all money raised would go to the charity.

To date she has raised an amazing £3250 with a few last minute payments due to come in.

Côr Curiad are a Llanelli based choir who choose a different charity every couple of years, this year they have chosen Marie Curie Wales who have helped and supported a lot of our members and their families through very difficult times.

Last year the choir gave a cheque for over £33,000 to Ty Bryngwyn Hospice Llanelli and 2 years before, over £10,000 to Calon + based in Prince Philip Hospital.

As for the choir, there are over 40 members with ages ranging from 18 to over 80. They have mothers and daughters, sisters and even a set of twins.

They do a range of charity events and concerts to raise this money, and all the girls give their time, traveling to and from events and taking part for free.
The next fundraising event for the choir will be an afternoon tea, tunes and tour at Stradey Castle on 1st July. Tickets are £16 for two sittings at 2pm and 4:30pm (entrance by tickets only).
