AN evening of musical entertainment at King’s Ely Senior has raised almost £300 for Crohn’s and Colitis UK.

Students of Etheldreda House, the home of the Ely Cathedral Girls’ Choir, staged their fun-filled annual Etheldreda Entertains cabaret evening at the school’s Hayward Theatre – much to the delight of their family and friends.

Housemistress of Etheldreda House and Head of Academic Music at King’s Ely Senior, Kirsty Wright, commented: “From numbers by Elvis Presley and Louis Armstrong to popular songs from shows by Bernstein and Stephen Schwartz, the girls wowed their family and friends with a set of polished performances, all ably accompanied by the ever-fabulous Mr Goodwin. We finished the night with a re-worded performance, not of ‘Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?’ from Frozen, but ‘Do You Wanna Be A Choirgirl?’, before drawing the tickets for a raffle full of brilliant prizes.”

The evening raised £290 in total for Crohn’s and Colitis UK, which is the UK’s leading charity in the battle against Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.

Kirsty added: “We were very pleased to raise nearly £300 and would like to thank everyone who helped to organise the event – especially Sam Campbell, our brilliant Matron – and all those who attended and supported our evening of musical entertainment.”
