Cash boost for cancer charity
MORE than £1,000 was raised through a concert organised by the Thornbury and District Cancer Research UK Committee.
String musicians who make up the Poet’s Quartet played to a packed house in the town’s United Reformed Church.
Although free to attend, a retiring collection brought in the donations.
The concert programme included works from Bach and Dvorak to Elgar and The Beatles.
Meanwhile, an event at the town’s Tesco store the following day raised more than £450 for the charity.
