VULNERABLE youngsters and a cancer charity are set to benefit from money raised at a concert.

Ipswich Choral Society has donated £430 to the Somebody's Daughter fund and £275 to Marie Curie Cancer Care following its Christmas concert.

Group members were joined by writer and broadcaster Rachel Sloane, who compered the concert, and Christin Pearce from Marie Curie Cancer Care, who is also a committee member of the society, in presenting the money.

Martin Nightingale, the society's events co-ordinator, said: "Choosing the Somebody's Daughter campaign was a reflection of the events of the year before and wanting to bring something to Christmas that was positive and yet helpful to young women who were on the streets."

The money for the cancer charity will fund the equivalent of 130 hours of direct patient care.

Ipswich Choral Society's next concert, Carmina Burana, will be held at Ipswich School on April 26. Tickets are £8 and available through www.ipswichchoral.com or at the door.
