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.”
