COMMUNITY leaders have given an operatic group a cash boost.
Town and district councillor Ben Emery paid a visit to Leek's All Saints Operatic Society at its rehearsal venue in St John's Church Hall, Belle Vue, Leek.
He handed over a cheque for £200 from his Staffordshire Moorlands District Councillor Community Initiative Fund.
Mr Emery said: "It gives me great pleasure to support the society, particularly this year as it presents 'Oh, What a Lovely War' as its tribute to all those who sacrificed their lives in the First World War."
Society chairman Alec Pointon said: "The society is also indebted to councillor Neal Podmore who has also granted £200 to the society from his fund but was not able to attend the ceremony."
