A series of concerts have raised mote than £1,400 for a Cambridgeshire hospice.

The concerts, which were organised by Sing! choirs, were held in Cambridge, Newmarket and Ely in December.

They raised £1427.37 for the Arthur Rank Hospice, which funds end of life care, counselling and support for adults with terminal illness.

Kathryn Rowland, musical director of Sing! Choirs said: “We are so pleased to be able to support such a brilliant charity that does such fantastic work.

“My choirs in Ely, Cambridge and Newmarket all worked really hard in the run up to the events in December, and the hard work all paid off with a fantastic amount raised. Thank you also to everyone who came along and supported the events.”

Donna Talbot, Arthur Rank Hospice fundraising and marketing manager, said: “We are so grateful to each and every member of Sing! Choirs.

“You have not only helped raise a terrific amount for the charity, you have helped raise awareness, which is equally important – thank you.”
