18 talented musicians took to the stage to perform popular music. The audience enjoyed an hour and half of singing and piano whilst raising £132.60!

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager for Kent and East Sussex, Hannah Auer, said: "Congratulations and thank you to each and every student as they not only performed beautifully, but they also organised and ran the entire concert, held a raffle and provided a great range of refreshments during the interval."

The money raised from this event could pay for a family to stay for four nights in one of CLIC Sargent's Homes from Home, providing free self-catering accommodation near to specialist children's cancer treatment centres, which are often many miles from a family's own home. Staying in a Home from Home ensures a family can be close to their child during treatment. The atmosphere in a Home from Home is friendly and welcoming. If they are well enough, the child or young person can stay there too.
