Church goers were treated to a musical trip through time to raise money for Help For Heroes and the Royal British Legion.

The concert at St Andrew’s Church in Eakring, named ‘Pack Up Your Troubles’, saw music from the World Wars being performed by the members of the Eakring Choir, led by teacher Sarah Walster on piano.

Their war-time uniforms and costumes also help them get into character for the purpose of the show, which was enjoyed by all.

The event raised £673 and a spokesman said: “It was a very enjoyable, fun evening, with refreshments served in the ‘NAAFI’ during the half time break!”
