Thank you for joining us at our first WYC busk around Bradford on Avon.  We sang to residents at Dorothy House, in front of the Bradford on Avon Town Centre in Westbury Gardens and at Timbrells Yard, who gave us delicious hot chocolates to warm us up.  We raised £60 for Dorothy House, and definitely brought some Christmas cheer to the town!
