Youngsters celebrated Christmas in style with a performance in front of their parents and staff.

Children from Oakway Academy, Victoria Primary Academy and Ecton Village Primary School took to the stage for the Christmas celebration by the Hatton Academies Trust last week.

The youngsters sang a range of Christmas carols and songs, with older students from Sir Christopher Hatton Academy in Wellingborough also participating with a number of musical and dance performances.

The evening also saw the presentation of a cheque for £1,624.42 to the Crazy Hats Breast Cancer Appeal for money raised by pupils during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

It was handed over to Glennis Hooper, founder of the Wellingborough-based charity which raises money to support and improve breast cancer care for patients at Kettering and Northampton general hospitals.

The festive celebration was brought to an end with a rendition of the Twelve Days of Christmas, which included audience participation.

Special guests invited to the event included Wellingborough mayor Barry Graves and deputy mayor Graham Lawman and their wives.
