This year’s event staged on Saturdays was in aid of Hearing Dogs for the Deaf and other Lions Charites

More than 140 singers on stage, plus soloist India Foskett, with leader and singing coach Lauren Field.

The concerts raised more than £4,794 and the raffle raised £632.

Lion Mike Bartlett said the concert was hugely enjoyable for everyone involved.

He said: “Lauren and 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 main beneficiary was Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, who train clever dogs to help deaf people. Other Lions charities also benefitted.

The Lions Charity is used to support individuals and organisations identified as being in need, in line with the Lions motto “Where there’s a need there’s a Lion”.

The group’s motto is “We Serve” and Lions are part of a global service network doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities. said Lion Vic Wright from Bletchley, Milton Keynes Lions Club
