The Lions Club of Bletchley and the five choirs of Rock Chorus joined forces for their sixth annual concertat The Venue MK on Saturday.

With sponsorship from Marshall Amps, IKEA and Yamaha, more than £4,600 was raised to support Medical Detection Dogs and the Lions Charity.

Over 130 singers on stage, plus soloist India Foskett, had the nearly sell-out audience rocking, singing and dancing along to 22 rock and pop songs.

Lions president Mike Bartlett said: “The singers in Rock Chorus work extremely hard to make this concert a success and the Lions, and the charities we support, are very grateful for their efforts.”

The donation to Medical Detection Dogs, based in Great Horwood, will allow a new dog to be named and undergo its extensive training before helping in the early diagnosis of cancers.
