Last year the Co-op had to cancel their annual charity Christmas concert due to Covid-19.

But this year they are back with the Doncaster Wheatsheaf Singers at the Minster of St George on December 18 at 7pm.

Dorothy Miler, chair of the choir, said: “The choir is delighted to be performing with one of our leading local brass bands - the Hatfield and Askern Colliery Band.
