A CONCERT has been held in Birkby to raise cash for vital church repairs.
St John’s Church welcomed Meltham and Meltham Mills Band on Saturday and entertained the congregation.
Donations and admission fees from the event will be spent on repairing the East window, which is currently undergoing restoration.
Stuart Fawcett who organised the concert, said: “A good sized and most appreciative audience enjoyed an excellent program of music from the band and their musical director Norman Law.
“Soloists Paula Spittlehouse (cornet), Alison Eastwood (horn), Chris Farrington delivered outstanding solos interspersed within music from the shows, ballet and Sousa as well as wonderful overture ‘Poet and Peasant’, and the concert concluded with John Miles’ ‘Music’.”
The event raised £400.
