The event raised �1,476 in aid of the Chemotherapy Appeal, councillor Ian Roome’s chosen charity for 2011-12.

Cllr Roome said: “The evening was a huge success with outstanding performances from Barnstaple Male Voice Choir; Bella Voce; North Devon All Starz; Barnstaple Jubilee Singers; Barnstaple Ladies Choir; Panache; Jaden Cornelious; and North Devon Guitar Ensemble. It was a truly fantastic evening.”

The Mayor also thanked guests for their generous contributions at the Fair Proclamation luncheon where a total of �531.48 was raised by a collection, also for the Chemotherapy Appeal.
