ABOUT $53,000 was raised by 21 choirs at the UK Fijian Methodist Fellowship choir competition at the weekend.

Speaking at the Kings Hall Civic Centre in Stoke, church steward Joseva Draunidalo said it was amazing to see the level of giving to the Lord by the church members.

"This is twice the amount of money raised last year and will be included in next year's budget," he said.

Mr Draunidalo said the huge number of church members from around the UK and Northern Ireland that took part in the competition was overwhelming.

He said Tidworth Fijian Methodist Fellowship took home the first prize after contributing about $17,000.

"Aldershot Fijian Methodist Fellowship came second with a contribution of more than $5000.

"Third place was Colchester Fijian Methodist Fellowship which contributed more than $3000."
