Alison Court and friends from the Witchert Chorale will be carol singing in Haddenham pubs on Monday evening, 23rd December.
As well as adding to the festive flavour of the evening in the run up to Christmas, the singers will be collecting donations for refugees in Syria.
The Government, through DIFD, has said it will match every £pound raised by the public.
Last year carol singers raised £200 for the charity Crisis. If they achieve same this year, this would mean a donation of £400 would go to help people in such terrible need in Syria. So, local revellers, please dig deep into your pockets.
Here's the approximate schedule:
