A theatre group sailed through a fund-raising concert emitting sunny vibes and enjoying an Around the World theme.

The Fifty-Something Theatre Company presented a feel-good programme of songs, poems and sketches in aid of Pendleside Hospice.

The charity production offered up some of the world’s best-loved musical numbers, including West Side Story’s America, followed by Isle of Capri, Spanish Eyes and From Russia With Love.

All but one of the poems, and two sketches, were penned by the society’s members.

A luxurious raffle completed the night’s entertainment.

Taking the seat of musical director was the talented Lorna Greaves, a graduate of the Royal College of Music.

A fantastic £1000 was raised for the hospice.
