A group of singers and dancers in Attleborough smashed their fundraising record during their second annual performance evening in aid of a charity that helps families affected by personal tragedies.
The ‘Happy’ evening, organised by Tyler Barker and performed by herself and friends from the Attleborough Players amateur dramatics society, was held at the Connaught Hall on Friday, July 18, to raise money for SANDS, a foundation founded to support anybody who has suffered from a stillbirth or neonatal death.
The event, which included ‘feel-good’ songs, a raffle, a cake sale and comedy antics from local duo Robert Thomas and Sam Woodrow, raised more than £800 for the charity.
Ms Barker said: “The SANDS charity is very special not only to me, but to my whole family. My auntie and uncle lost their little girl, Molly, and my cousins lost their baby boy, Riley.
“I am astounded by the support that I have received from friends, family and the local community.
“I want to personally thank everyone who was involved, donated prizes for the raffle and came to see the show and raising this amount of money gives me a challenge to beat next year!”
The first annual show held last year, titled ‘All You Need is Love’, brought in £602.
