Choirs across Norfolk and Suffolk have raised vital funds to the tune of £1,600 for charity through their concerts.

The money was raised in concerts by the VivaVoices community choirs in Wymondham, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket in July and August, singing a mix of songs from across the decades.

The money was raised for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

'With almost two million people in the UK living with sight loss, I'm

delighted that my choirs raised such an amazing amount for Guide Dogs,' said choir leader and local musician Graeme Hopson.
