College students have been raising money for charity with a Christmas concert.
Money from the event, which took place in St Peter’s Church, Ipswich, was donated to the Make a Wish Foundation.
The students were all from Suffolk New College’s music department on level two and three courses and both arranged and performed at the concert.
The sell-out crowd were treated to a range of Christmas songs performed as solos and ensemble pieces.
Jo King, Programme Leader for Performing Arts and Music, said: “This was a fantastic way to end the first term of the year.
“It was a chance for students to demonstrate the skills they have learnt, have fun and raise money for a good cause.
“The students had all worked together in putting on this performance and it was a great opportunity for them to perform in front of a live, sit-down audience.”
