BUILTH Wells Male Voice Choir have joined forces with the Rhayader Male Voice Choir and guest singers to entertain a large audience in aid of the Friends of Cefnllys School and Ysgol Calon Cymru.

With the campaign for Not in My Name, Violence Against Women beginning next on November 25 it was an opportunity for for men in the community to show their support for the White Ribbon Campaign, the largest effort in the world of men working to end men's violence against women.

The white ribbon is a symbol of men's opposition to male violence against women.

Wearing a white ribbon is a personal pledge never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women.

Annually, men and boys are encouraged to wear a ribbon for one or two weeks, starting on November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and International White Ribbon Day.

Members of both choirs held pictures of the symbol of the campaign in an endorsement of this campaign.

The campaign organised and spear headed by the Women's Institutes is now in its seventh year and the annual Candelight Vigil organised by NFWI-Wales will be held at 5pm on November 25 around the Pierhead Building in Cardiff.
