Holmes Music Christmas Charity Show
Event raises over £5,000 for Goldenhar charity
A Christmas music show, now in its 26th year, has made a 'massive difference' to a charity helping families affected by a very rare condition.

Goldenhar Family Support Group
Alan Holmes of Holmes Music in Faringdon Road, whose grandson Morgan suffers from Goldenhar Syndrome, donated all the proceeds from their annual event to The Goldenhar Family Support Group - in total £5,220.
A 2009 calendar produced by Darren and Lisa Coleman of Puttyfoot photography, Billly Beaumont of Billy Blagstar Productions and printed by ESP Colour, is also helping to raise money for the cause that has supported Alan and his family in recent years.
"Everyone has been enormously generous," Alan said, "and this money really will make a massive difference to a charity that is doing some fantastic work.
"It's our way of saying thank you."
