GARDEN House Hospice has received £300 from a music hall group.

The Phoenix Music Hall Company provided the old time music hall entertainment at the recent celebration of the centenary of The Skittles Inn in The Settlement, Letchworth GC.

The company chairman, David Monck, said: "All the proceeds we make from doing these fundraising shows goes to the hospice.

"We all enjoy performing and we know that our audiences enjoy the experience from the feedback we receive."

Over the years the company has raised more than £2,000 for the hospice and other charities.

The group formed a few years ago by friends who enjoy performing music hall songs, and it currently has 18 members who perform around Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

If you feel that the group could help your fundraising venture, or you would like to join the group, give them a ring on 01462 892062.
