Dunfermline Christmas concert raises £4,000 for military charity

The Military Wives’ Choir Rosyth, ably backed up by “SSAFA Brass”, delighted an audience at Pittencrieff Park’s Glen Pavilion in Dunfermline on December 1 with a repertoire of songs and music that tugged at the heartstrings and brought a festive feel to the venue.

Military Wives Choirs, both an independent charity and a subsidiary of SSAFA that supports women across the military community, has celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2022 with a range of concerts across the UK.

The Fife concert, in aid of SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity comprised a range of favourites including Christmas carols, songs from Les Misérables, and by Adele.

Allan Steele, Corporate and Special Events Officer for SSAFA in Scotland, said:

I’m thrilled to report that the evening was a great success and brought so much happiness, and I think a few tears, to the 150 members of the community in the audience.

Military Wives Choirs has done so much in its magical first decade to bring companionship and support – values of course shared with SSAFA – to women whose serving spouses are deployed far from home overseas.”

He added that the concert, which raised £4,000 for SSAFA, was

“… a great way to celebrate Christmas and support our Armed Forces at the same time”.
