Founder of the Wellingborough-based breast cancer charity Glennis Hooper said: “The concert was simply fantastic.

“Although it was a fundraising event at which approximately £2,500 was raised, it was definitely an evening about bringing people together to celebrate life.

“It really was such an uplifting experience for everyone.

“The Seagrave Singers were brilliant, as were The Frutones.

“Sue did a magnificent job of managing the three choirs on the night and Nigel Adair as compere and performer was just as brilliant.

“It all worked.”

Musical director Sue Peel said: “To see your lovely ladies stand so proudly at the front of a huge audience, heads held high, huge smiles and to sing their hearts out was so, so rewarding and so emotional.

“I am totally bowled over by their commitment, hard work, enthusiasm and friendship.

“I feel honoured and humbled to have worked with them.”

Proceeds from the event will go to Crazy Hats, which raises money to help improve breast cancer care at both Kettering and Northampton general hospitals.

The charity has raised more than £2.3 million since it was first set up in 2001.
