A CHESTER-le-Street concert raised £2,500 for a children’s cancer charity.
Local choir Agape and the Durham Miners Association Brass Band performed at the Salvation Army Citadel on Saturday (September 28) to raise money for Sara’s Hope Foundation.
The Cramlington-based foundation runs a holiday retreat in Crete in honour of Sara Hoburn who lost her battle against cancer aged 16. In the audience were North Durham MP Kevan Jones and the Durham County councillor for Chester-le-Street North, Tracie Smith.
Mr Jones said: “I am very pleased to be able to show my support for this excellent cause and would like to congratulate all involved in making the evening such a success.”
Councillor Smith said, "It was a lovely evening and an amazing £2,500 has been raised."
Alan Taylor, of the Durham Miners Association Brass Band, who organised the event, added: "This fundraising event brought together a lot of organisations in the Chester-le-Street area for a very worthy cause and I wish to thank all who supported it."
