A number of choirs from across West Suffolk did their communities proud last week when they teamed up to raise almost £1,500 for a local children’s ward.
The VivaVoices community choirs in Stowmarket, Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket put on a selection of Easter concerts in aid of West Suffolk Hospital Children’s Rainbow Ward.
Choir leader Graeme Hopson said: “The Rainbow Ward is a cause particularly close to my heart because my son Theo, who was born over Christmas, became ill and required care on the ward for a week before making a full recovery.
“During that difficult time my wife and I were impressed by the kindness and dedication of the staff and the quality of care he received.
“Raising money for the Rainbow Ward is our way of thanking the staff and helping other babies and children, and I’m delighted by how much our concerts have raised.”
