MORE than 200 singers from the Stourbridge and Wolverhampton Got 2 Sing community choirs delivered an evening of Soul and Motown classics at Dudley Town Hall and helped to raise £859 for the Mary Stevens Hospice.

Beth Dunn, founder and director of Got 2 Sing, commented: "It was a truly 'feel good' evening in every sense and the audience was rocking in the aisles! I was delighted with the amount raised for Mary Stevens Hospice too – such a worthwhile cause."

Vanessa Wale, Community Fundraiser for the Hospice, said: "We had an amazing evening and would like to thank Got 2 Sing for supporting the Mary Stevens and raising awareness of the care that the hospice provides for the local community.

"In total we raised £859 – an amazing amount! £2 could keep an in-patient pain free for a hour, this money really will make a significant difference to our patients and their families."

Marlene Watson, representing Mary Stevens Hospice, thanked the audience for their generosity, paying particular thanks to the Mayor and Mayoress of Dudley who were in attendance.

She explained how the proceeds would benefit the hospice immensely in their efforts to help people living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
