BARNSLEY College's first ever Christmas Celebration Concert raised £1000 for Barnsley Hospice and over 300 people attended.

The concert - held in the atrium of the new building - featured Barnsley Community Choir who performed Christmas Classics.

Barnsley Community Choir was formed in March 2011 by Barnsley College’s Director of Arts Josie Whiteley and Choir Leader Kershia Pierce.

Over the last eight months the choir has raised hundreds of pounds for local charities and has even auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent.

Rehearsals take place at Barnsley College on Tuesday evenings- no auditions are required.
