I WOULD like to thank everyone who dropped money into the bucket while I was playing carols on my trombone before Christmas.

The totals raised were:

—For Andover Food Bank, at Kenyons on Saturday, 22 December, £125.29

—For Air Ambulance and Blood Bikes, at Burbidges on Christmas Eve, £30.05

A Happy and Peaceful New Year to you all.

Ros Yarlett, The Crescent, Andover.
