A Honiton sing and sign choir will benefit this Christmas from a £100 injection.

Town councillors unanimously agreed to provide money to help cover the costs of the choir’s first Christmas party.

Councillor Caroline Kolek, who along with Cllr Mike Jones, is involved with the choir, said: “The choir works with disabled and special needs young people.

“I had a lump in my throat when I visited them.

“These are youngsters who will not go out to nightclubs like we did in our youth.

“I would really like it if they had a decent Christmas cake.”

Cllr Jones added: “The people that run it are local people, for local people. - I urge you all to support it.

“They still need musical instruments, such as hand bells, triangles and mouth organs.

“They would love to take them.”

Councillors unanimously approved the £100 request.
