We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

A CHARITY Christmas single recorded by the Barnsley Youth Choir will get its first play on WAB Radio on Monday.

The double A-side CD, featuring 'O Holy Night', will have its debut during the drive time show at 5pm.

Also featuring 'Winter Wonderland', this track will be played on the Dearne FM breakfast show from 7.30am.

All profits from the single, which goes on sale next Friday, will be donated to the Barnsley Hospice.

The CD will cost £2 and will be available at the Chronicle's reception on Church Street, Horizon Community College, Barnsley Hospice shops and via the Barnsley Youth Choir website.

The choir has also launched a social media campaign that aims to get people changing their Facebook profile and cover photos to support the CD.

It is fantastic to see 200 young people from Barnsley doing something so positive to support vulnerable in their local community this Christmas. There are now over 30 organisations who are happy to stock and sell the CD.

Let's hope that the Barnsley community to get behind the CD now. £2.00 per copy and all proceeds will go to Barnsley Hospice. The quality is superb - a fantastic Christmas present! Do something wonderful for the Hospice this Christmas - buy one! More information available on the Barnsley Youth Choir website

The young people of BYC are fantastic ambassadors of Barnsley. They come together every week and produce a breathtaking sound. The single sounds fantastic and will make a brilliant stocking filler. Please help BYC raise as much money as possible for Barnsley Hospice by buying a CD this Christmas.

These young people deserve all the praise for their support of this worthwhile cause. So pleasing to see good coming from the youth of a great town. It will be wonderful if the people of Barnsley and beyond could show their support.

sid why bother commenting then? 200 children and teenagers giving up their time is better than them roaming the streets!!! Also the money raised is for Barnsley Hospice who I hope you never have to use. But you never know what's going to happen to you in the future.I could go into full rant mode but that might lead to me swearing which,considering the nature of the post,wouldn't be appropriate.

This is a wonderful cd and Barnsley should be proud of these youngsters. If you have never heard Barnsley Youth Choir you are missing the most amazing group of talented youngsters. For £2.00 as a stocking filler its ideal but most of all you will helping a worthy and local charity. In response to Carol don't buy it for your kids but for yourself. You might not know the children on the single but the sound and quality is amazing. Thank you to everyone who is supporting this worthwhile cause xxx
