Clare Clay, of the club, said: “We are calling on people of Cambridgeshire to stand together against hatred and intolerance and show their support by singing.

“The concert will finish with the The Big Sing! where we would love as many local people and organisations to join us in singing ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ by Oasis and ‘Love Shine A Light’ by Katrina and the Waves.

“We already have a couple of local schools and scout groups eager to join in.

The charity was set up by the British Red Cross to help people affected by terror attacks in the UK, to ensure that victims and their families do not face short-term financial difficulties.
