Ladies choir ‘In Harmony’ performed at Our Lady’s church in Acomb in front of an impressed audience.

The 24-strong choir, who were formed in 2013, sung melodies from musicals, including Oliver, The King and I, My Fair Lady and Wicked.

Choir treasurer Carol Brown spoke warmly about the event. She said: “We raised £666 altogether and that made the event worthwhile on its own.

“A parishioner who I hadn’t really ever spoken to came up to me and said he really enjoyed the concert and lots of other people said that they had a good time.

“Somebody else has signed up for the choir as well as a result of the concert.”

Two raffles were also held to reach the impressive total for the East Africa appeal.

Across East Africa, millions of families face starvation because of drought, lack of food, and civil war. The UN has described this as the largest humanitarian crisis in more than 70 years.

Incredibly, over £1million was raised for the appeal in just a week.
