A choral group have donated proceeds of their latest concert to a charity.

Representatives of Shine, a Spina Bifida charity, recently joined Wetley Rocks Male Voice Choir to receive a cheque for £2,500, the proceeds of a concert staged by the choir.

The grandson of the choir's musical director Ian Jones has the condition, and young Harry was also present at the event.

The success of this event has prompted the choir to decide to stage a charity concert annually in the future.
