Two local charities have shared a £4,000 windfall thanks to the Carols at Tattersalls concert organised by the Newmarket Rotary Club. Club president Richard Bennett left and secretary David Henderson, right are pictured presenting cheques for £2,000 each to Sheila Brown from East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and Barbara McGee from the East Anglia Air Ambulance.

There were over 200 participants in the concert, which was the 30th organised by the club. During the concert a tribute was made by conductor Vernon Place to the late Margaret Minns, who organised the first concert in 1985 and died last year.
