An evening of ‘Brass n’ Voices’ raised almost £900 for the Manx Blind Welfare Society, which looks after the interests of over 600 people with serious sight loss on the Isle of Man.

The Lon Dhoo Male Voice Choir and Rushen Silver Band provided the entertainment at the event, which was organised by the Isle of Man Fund for the Blind, the fundraising arm of MBWS.

An audience of more than 80 were treated to an evening of wonderful music and singing at Bemahague School in Onchan, raising £878.90 through tickets sales and a raffle.

Volunteers’ coordinator and events organiser Debbie Kenyon said: ‘Brass n’ Voices was a wonderful event, and we were delighted to see so many people enjoying the exceptional performances of the choir and band.

‘I’d like to thank the Lon Dhoo Male Voice Choir, Rushen Silver Band, everyone who came along and Fund chairman Jean Purvis and her team for organising such a tremendous evening.

‘The funds raised at events like this are absolutely vital to allow us to continue to provide important amenities for people with serious sight loss in the Isle of Man. We provide many essential services for free and rely entirely upon the generosity of the public to continue that work.’
