Emma Ladd, a director at Coles Solicitors which has a branch in Market Weighton, is pitching for chart success. Emma sings with the York Military Wives’ Choir, one of more than 60 featured on Remember 1918-2018, an album to commemorate the Great War.

Emma said: “Coming from a military family, getting involved in the choir was very important to me. The support network is so valuable, and I don’t need to explain life as a Forces wife to them as they already know.

“Coles is incredibly supportive of our Armed Forces. Our charity of the year for 2017 was the Soldiers Sailors Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA), a charity that is extremely close to my heart, and we also have a number of ex-serving personnel and military wives amongst the team.

“The team has been massively supportive of my singing – they’ve been great about allowing me extra time for rehearsals and coming to watch as many performances as they can.”
