Angelic choir sings for charity

THE third annual Carols on the Green raised a record $18,500 for the St Vincent De Paul Society.

The November event is a joint project between Brothers Leagues Club and St Edmund's College and featured professional singers, the RAAF band and choirs from St Mary's, St Joseph's and Ipswich Central Primary School.

St Edmund's College principal Brendan Lawler said the event's success was steadily growing.

"We raised $10,000 in 2009 and $14,000 last year, so it's great that it's on the rise," Mr Lawler said.

Year 12 student Matthew Semple said it was great to help.

"Being in the choir, it was kind of expected, but we would've done it either way - it's just a good thing to do," Matthew said.
