At the end of the concert, a collection was made for Hope House, which raised £585 for the charity.
Emily Jones, Area Fundraiser for Hope House who attended the concert, said: “We are so grateful to be receiving a donation off the back of this concert as we rely on fundraising in and by the community for over 80 per cent of our annual need, which last year was £6.3 million.
“At present we are only able to afford to offer our help to 1 in 3 local families that need us. Our aim is to increase our annual fundraising to £10 million every year so that we can offer our services to every single family that suffers the death of a child.”
