A community carol concert at St James's Church has raised 707 to support Syrian refugees in Jordan.

Concertgoers were treated to a Christmas medley of carols, songs and readings, including performances from the Barbershop Boys which bore more than a passing resemblance to Flanders and Swann.

Thanks to the generosity of those who attended the village hall lunch for Syria in the autumn, Brightwell Supporting Refugees has already raised enough money to provide a year's salary for an English teacher in the White Hands Villa School in north-east Jordan, near the Syrian border.

Funds have also been swollen by around 220 by the sale of Rabbit & Mole books generously donated to the group by author Alec McGivan. These children's stories are illustrated by Olive Sutcliffe.

The trustees will meet in the new year to decide whether to put the money towards providing another teacher, or helping fund other education needs, including heating and transport.
