The concert brought together more than 50 singers from the Norfolk-based choir and 60 students aged seven to 11 from Queen’s Hill School, along with the school’s staff band providing musical accompaniment to the choir.

The Choir’s musical director Ian Elliott said: "We are really pleased to have raised £1,100 to support CLIC Sargent’s vital services in the Norfolk community.

"The concert was truly an event for all the family to enjoy with festive songs ranging from pop classics to Disney favourites and the occasional carol."

The concert was again compered by ITV News Anglia’s Jonathan Wills who was accompanied by none other than Olaf the Snowman from Disney's Frozen.

In the lead up to the concert, staff and students of Queen’s Hill took to the centre of Norwich to sing Christmas carols and raised £400 in the process taking the grand total raised to £1,500.

Great cause

Head teacher of Queen’s Hill School, Penny Sheppard, said: "We are delighted to have been part of this wonderful event for the fifth year running. It’s all about making people smile while supporting a great cause."

The festive spectacular was kindly sponsored by the East of England Co-Op, who also supplied mice pies and refreshments on the evening.

Grateful

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Daisy Turner said: “We are very grateful to all the tremendous singers and the staff and students of Queen’s Hill for their amazing support. A huge thanks also goes to the East of England Co-Op for their support, without whom the concert would not have been possible.”
