There was plenty of festive feeling in Sainsbury’s on Saturday as Viva Youth Theatre serenaded shoppers.

The cast of the group’s upcoming production of Oliver! was on hand and in perfect pitch with a variety of Christmas favourites, from Ding Dong right through to Slade.

Shoppers were treated to 90 minutes of singing, with more than £270 collected in donations.

Hetti Wood, of Viva, said: “It was an absolutely fantastic amount, we didn’t expect that at all. We were overwhelmed by the support we received and we were really pleased to have been invited back to perform again.”

Oliver! is showing from March 4-7, next year. For information, contact Viva on 01353 722228.
