Concert so people shine

A CONCERT featuring pupils past and present, from the Darnell School of Singers, raised cash for the Shine Foundation, at the Bethel Methodist Church, in South Normanton, on Saturday. Highlights included traditional Zulu song Siyahamba, by the Cantorum Ensemble, and Bridge Over Troubled Waters, by the Three Lindas.

The whole company led a Last Night of the Proms grand finale with 200 flags and patriotically-coloured balloons. Linda Darnell said: “It was a fantastic evening – one of the best I think we’ve ever done. There was a capacity audience of 200 people and we raised £500 for the foundation and £100 for the church.”
