The group, from Chetwynde School, Barrow, raised £109 for Anthony Nolan, the UK’s blood cancer charity and bone marrow register.

The performance was organised by brass and guitar tutor Kathryn McCullough, who also chose the charity, and took place on December 11 last year.

Head of music Janet Johnson said: “Many of the pupil’s parents came and a load of other people came to watch as well.

“We only spent an hour there and managed to raise quite a lot of money for the charity.

“People were happy to give some money and the group had fun going around and collecting.”

The day was arranged by Mrs McCullough with help from Barrow Borough Council town centre manager, Ann Taylforth.

Mrs McCullough takes the pupils to perform in the town centre every year.
