Ipswich Choral Society is presenting 'Ipswich Sings Christmas' at the Corn Exchange on December 15, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Somebody's Daughter fund.

The evening, dubbed by organisers as 'a carol concert with a difference', will include guest performances from a handful of Suffolk schools, including Grundisburgh primary, Claydon high and St Alban's high, as well as the Ipswich Citadel Salvation Army Band.

The concert will be introduced by BBC Suffolk's Rachel Sloane.
