Shepshed & District Funeral Service colleagues, friends and family helped raise over £2,000 for charity thanks to their latest musical extravaganza.

The musical performance was the group’s fifth annual charity show, and benefited Midlands-based national charity Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children.

Funeral Director Suzanne Buckeridge, who organised the fundraising event, said: “It was a great night out and I would like to thank our 14 amazing singers plus all the fantastic musicians who took part in our fundraising activity. We are absolutely delighted to have raised £2,085 for this very worthwhile cause.”

‘Hits from the Jukebox’ was performed at Shepshed High School, in Forest Street and was attended by the mayor of Charnwood borough, Councillor Sandie Forrest, and Shepshed Council chairman Councillor Joan Tassell.

Newlife Fundraising Manager Nora Smith said: “We can’t thank Suzanne and colleagues, friends and family enough for their support. This money will help make a huge difference to the everyday lives of disabled and terminally ill children in Leicestershire.”
