Bram Bryant has retired after more than two decades overseeing proceedings with Beccles ‘Friends in Harmony’ choir, raising tens of thousands of pounds for good causes along the way.

The choir was joined at the farewell concert - held at Beccles Parish Church - by the Norfolk Fellowship Brass Band of the Salvation Army, conducted by David Woodrow.

After a capacity audience was treated to a feast of high quality music, Mr Bryant received a host of retirement gifts and he handed over a cheque totalling £1,600 for the band’s appeal, supporting the Salvation Army’s work in Estonia.

With the continuous support of his wife and choir accompanist Christine, he has contributed significantly towards raising money for local, national and international charities, generating a sum of more than £55,000 over the years.
