Swindon's carers choir brings festive mood to Pebley Beach

A choir formed by unpaid carers in Swindon officially launched Christmas at motor dealership Pebley Beach this week.

Back in the summer, the Hyundai and Suzuki dealer pledged to match every pound raised by Swindon Carers Centre’s Walk A Mile In My Shoes sponsored walk up to £1,000.

Not only did their pledge spur on supporters to hit their £1,000 total, they exceeded it – raising almost £2,000. With Pebley Beach’s donation, the campaign total was just under £3,000.

And to say thank you, seven of the 14-strong Swindon Carers Choir performed a selection of carols and Christmas songs at the showroom on Tuesday (December 12).

Their repertoire included Let it Go, from Disney's Frozen, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Jingle Bell Rock, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!, and Rocking Around the Christmas Tree, which was filmed for the occasion. 

The choir represents some of the 4,000 unpaid carers, whose ages range from between five and 96, who are supported by the charity. 

Typically, the carers are looking after a spouse or family member. Younger carers, of whom there are around 900 in the borough, are often supporting a parent. 

The weekly choir rehearsals provide a break from caring, and a platform for mutual support. The choir – which was formed a year ago – performs around Swindon, raising awareness of the charity.

Financial Disclosure

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
