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.
