Air ambulance flying high after £2,500 boost from Lavenham choir's concert
A community choir has hailed its latest concert a success after raising more than £2,500 for charity.
Upbeat Contemporary Choir staged a concert in aid of the East Anglia Air Ambulance, which provides a helicopter emergency medical service in the region.
The choir performed at The Apex, in Bury St Edmunds, earlier this month raising £2,511.81.
“The singing was outstanding and I’m so proud of how everyone pulled together to make this concert the success it was,” said founder Andrea King, from Monks Eleigh.
The choir, which began as a group of 13, has grown into an ensemble with around 50 members, who practice in Lavenham Primary School on Wednesday evenings.
“We are delighted with the incredible amount raised by the choir for our charity,” said Mark Wilson, community fundraiser for the air ambulance in Suffolk.
“During the last 18 years, the air ambulance has been on almost 23,000 missions with our two helicopters.
“We are looking to go to a 24/7 service across East Anglia in two years time and so all continued support is much appreciated.”
