COMMUTERS were greeted with a chorus of Christmas joy at an uplifting performance in Sheffield railway station.

South Yorkshire based people’s choir BeVox sang a medley of festive songs and carols around the station’s sparkling Christmas tree to raise cash for St Luke’s Hospice.

The singing group’s magical music raised smiles on the faces of tired passengers travelling home.

It was the latest event in a packed seasonal schedule for BeVox. On Sunday members stunned shoppers with a ‘carol-off’ battle at Meadowhall.

And they helped raise £1,400 for dementia charity Lost Chord with another entertainment event at the shopping centre.

Singers joined those from The University of Sheffield, Bel Canto choir and Sheffield High School, Birkdale, Ashdell and Aston Academy to support the charity that provides interactive musical experiences for people with dementia.

Lost Chord fundraising manager Tina Harrison said: “We were delighted and overwhelmed by the generosity of shoppers who made our collection days such a success.”

Tomorrow acclaimed international saxophonist Andy Cahill will rock around the Christmas tree for patients and staff at St Luke’s Hospice, on Little Common Lane in Whirlow.
