Festive evening of songs helps raise funds for Hethersett Jubilee Youth Club

A festive evening of songs and carols kicked off Christmas celebrations at Hethersett Jubilee Youth Club and at the same time helped raise funds for its work with local young people.

Music was provided by the Barnham Broom-based D'Capo Choir, which mixed traditional Christmas music and carols with more contemporary numbers such as Sting's Fields of Gold and Paul Simon's Sound of Silence.

The evening also included mulled wine and mince pies to warm everyone on a very cold night.

It was the latest in a long line of fundraising events for the club.

The ladies pamper evening held in November raised �130. The club is also collecting plastic bottle tops in aid of the Matthew Project. The club is in urgent need of a secretary to take minutes of committee meetings, which take place about six times a year.
