Popular singing fund raisers have a successful Big Summer Concert in Barnstaple.

THE Hospital Choir has raised plenty of notes after collecting £2,622.85 from its Big Summer Concert for the Chemotherapy Appeal.

The event was held over two evenings in July at Christ Church in Barnstaple and the theme was A Night at the Musicals.

On the night they were joined by Nigel Brooks’ Panache plus the Orchard Vale School Choir.

Everyone in the choir would like to thank all those who supported the concert, either by taking part or being part of the audience.
