SINGERS  from across the region are joining together in Liskeard on Saturday, October 28, in concert to raise vital funds for Cornwall Air Ambulance – an event that is being organised by a local teenager. 

Compèred by broadcasting personality Justin Leigh, ‘Saving Lives Through Song’ will feature the Tamar Valley Male Voice Choir, the impressive Buccas Four Quartet from Mousehole and Swing and Blues singer, Annie-River, to offer a lively evening of entertainment for the audience. 

The concert has been arranged by Evelyn Cole, who attends Callywith College. She chose to support the charity as part of her Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. 

“Part of my award involves volunteering,” said Evelyn. “I wanted something which would make an impact and chose Cornwall Air Ambulance after hearing about their life-saving missions.” 

Her first fundraising event was a pub quiz at The Weary Friar pub in Pillaton, which raised more than £500. 

“Huge thanks go to everyone who has supported me with both the pub quiz and the concert, to help me to raise these funds,” Evelyn added.  

Saving Lives Through Song is at 7pm at St Martin’s Church in Liskeard, PL14 3AQ. Tickets are £7.50 (under-14s  £5) and are available on the door by cash or card, from St Martin’s Church office, via the Tamar Valley Male Voice Choir website ( or by calling Ray Hinton on 07817 521185.
