Poringland singing sensation Ronan Parke helped raise more than £2,000 for good causes at a festive carol concert at Sandringham church.
Britain’s Got Talent star Ronan, 14, sang an a capella version of Silent Night at the event organised by the Ormiston charity.
Ronan Parke said after the concert: “I’m so pleased that I was able be a part of Ormiston’s carol concert.
“As a young person myself I feel proud to support a charity that does such great work with young people and their families. And the opportunity to sing in such a historic venue was something I couldn’t miss.”
Lady Xa Tollemache, president of the charity, hosted the concert on Thursday night.
She said: “It was a fabulous evening. The service was beautiful and the three performances made it really special. We are so grateful to have been able to host the event at Sandringham. The St Mary Magdalene Church was a fantastic setting. It’s wonderful to see people supporting Ormiston. We need a lot of money to support this wonderful charity and the carol concert definitely helped us to do that.”
All money raised from the event will enable Ormiston to continue making young lives better across East Anglia. The charity offers support to families affected by imprisonment, runs a variety of parenting support programmes and has initiatives to support gipsy and traveller families.
