The college’s choir, rock band and orchestra were joined by pupils from Manea Community Primary, Benwick Primary, Lionel Walden Primary in Doddington and Glebelands and Kingsfield Primary Schools in Chatteris for the event.

The concert raised £270 for the Rotary Club and marked the club’s 40th anniversary.

Each school performed two choral items, with music from each of the decades to celebrate the milestone.

The evening finished with all of the choirs joining together to perform three songs, accompanied by guitars and drums.
