School choirs from across Suffolk are fine-tuning their performances for competition in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice.

Pupils from Finborough School, St Edmund’s Catholic Primary, St Mary’s C of E Academy, Hardwick Primary and Woolpit Primary Academy will vie to be crowned inaugural winners of the charity contest at St Edmundsbury Cathedral on Saturday, February 24.

They will be judged by a specialist panel including identical twin sopranos Naomi and Hannah Moxon, better known as Classical Reflection from TV talent show The Voice.

Helen Lyons, a teacher at Finborough, said: “Taking part in this is giving children the opportunity to be part of a choir that helps grow confidence and self-esteem, as well as to be part of an event that raises funds for a great charity locally. The children will associate the joy of singing with that of helping those children more vulnerable than them.”

Natasha Brame, EACH Suffolk community fundraiser, said: “There’s a great buzz about this competition as it draws closer and the good news for everyone in and around Bury St Edmunds is that there are still tickets remaining. It’s a stunning venue, and there will be a raffle and cake sale in addition to everything else happening, so why not come along and join us for a great night of entertainment?”

“The money raised from ticket sales will help us at EACH continue providing care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Suffolk and the rest of East Anglia, as well as support for their families.”
