A group of singers from Stanmore have helped to raise thousands of pounds for charity after participating in a national competition.
The North London Collegiate School Choir took part in the annual Barnardo’s National Choral Competition at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Monday, March 12 and in doing so, helped to raise £37,000 for the charity.
The choir of schoolchildren performed two songs to the panel and then another one later on to the audience.
Richard Elliot, the school’s Junior School Director of Music said: “We were all thrilled that our Junior Chamber singers were selected out of hundreds of schools to perform in the finals of the Barnardo’s National Choir Competition.
“It was an exciting and memorable experience for our girls to perform in front of an audience of thousands at the Royal Festival Hall and also to support such a wonderful and worthy cause.”
Barnardo’s Chief Executive, Javed Khan, said: “This was a wonderful evening of music performed by some talented young Barnardo’s supporters.
“We are so grateful for all of the hard work they put into their rehearsals – it certainly paid off and raised an incredible amount of money too.”
