Choir group Littleport Lyrics received a cheque for more than £200 this week from Ely retailer Waitrose.

At the end of the month, the tokens are totted up and cheques shared out. This week, Littleport Lyrics were handed £204 from Waitrose staff.

The group entertain residents in care and residential homes throughout the area and will put the cash towards new instruments and expenses.
