Marvellous music proved to be a moneyspinner when Stevenage Ladies Choir staged a concert at the town’s Barclay School.
The ladies were joined by special guests the Leigh Orpheus Male Voice Choir from Essex, and performed to a packed audience.
Included in the programme was a medley from West End hit Miss Saigon, South Pacific standard I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair and a rousing performance by both choirs of The Rhythm Of Life.
The evening raised £550 for the North Herts branch of REMAP, a volunteer group of engineers and handymen who make bespoke equipment to help disabled people live more independent lives.
They create everything from ramps to sports equipment to help make people’s lives easier and enable them to enjoy the things they love.
