A CAWTHORNE teenager has proven that she really hits the right note with her neighbours  – after they agreed to sponsor her to take part in an international singing competition.

Cannon Hall Farm is sponsoring local lass Lottie Dry to travel to the World Choir Games in Flanders in Belgium in July. 

Barnsley Youth Choir currently stand at an astonishing number three in the world rankings and will compete against around 600 choirs with a total of over 20,000 singers from more than 100 nations. 

Richard Nicholson, a director at the award winning farm, said “We’re really delighted to be helping to support these talented kids in putting our home town of Barnsley on the map. 

“The choir is a registered charity, run by volunteers which seeks to provide outstanding opportunities for young people who live in Barnsley. 

“If local businesses and individuals can help out I’d suggest it’s a very worthwhile cause to support. We wish Lottie and all her friends in BYC lots of luck in the competition.”
