Friday night's charity concert at the Civic Hall was another huge success and close to 500 people turned out to enjoy the cream of our local talent.
The fabulous evening included turns from The Aveley and Newham Brass Band, The Mosaic Choir, The Little Thurrock School Choir, The Drumenagh School of Irish dance and the amazing young singer Teerna Mukherjee and the equally brilliant and internationally renowned flautist Amy-Jayne Milton. Brilliantly held together by the ever reliable Alan Peaford MBE it finished with a hugely entertaining rendition of The Twelve Days of Christmas which was coordinated in spectacular style and used just about everybody in the hall!
They are counting the monies and a final total is yet to be confirmed but should be in the region of £5000 - all to be used on local causes.
