A group of singers are tuning up to help two local charities this festive season with the launch of their latest CD.

The latest offering from Bo’ness Belles is a compilation of six well known Scottish songs and those involved believe it is perfect for Hogmanay parties.

Made up of 20 volunteers who all love to sing, the Belles perform in care homes, sheltered housing developments and hospitals in the area.

They have also performed at various venues across the district, including Bo’ness town Hall, Linlithgow Academy and the Hippodrome.

Next month they will be singing at the Virgin Money Lounge in Edinburgh and the SRPS Santa trains at Bo’ness.

Last year, their activities raised over £5400 for Falkirk Autistic Bairns and this year the nominated charities are The Tuesday Club at St Andrew’s Church, Bo’ness and the Sing along for Memory at St Michael’s Church, Linlithgow. Both provide support for people living with dementia and their families.

Jeni Mallace, Belles founder, said: “We all love singing and absolutely love what we do, bringing entertainment and laughter to the residents.”

The CD, priced £5, can be obtained from choir members or at various businesses, including in Bo’ness – Riddell’s Garage, The Corbie Inn, Branches, Sweets’n Things, Rock’n Rolls, The Town Bistro, Paper Ribbons, Corvi’s and Ink Spot & Silver Leaf Booksellers. While in Linlithgow at Little Beau Peep, Taste and Far from the Madding Crowd.
