A GROUP who got together 15 years ago will be performing at Grantham Hospice tonight (Friday) from 7.30pm.

Collage, which is made up of 11 singers and their pianist Jenny Walker, will perform a mix of operatic, choral and show tunes.

Group member Jackie Brooks said: “We all love to sing. We sing for fund-raising events for churches and the hospice and we also sing for the WI and weddings. We sing all sorts of things.”

The group, who are all former members of Grantham Operatic Society, originally got together when they were asked to perform at a festival in Colsterworth. They had such a good time there, that they have been singing together ever since.

Jackie said: “We all get on very well together. Our musical director John Down keeps us all together. People say we really look like we’re having a good time when we perform.”

l Tickets for the evening, in aid of the hospice, in Barrowby Road, Grantham, cost £10 and include wine and canapés.

Contact the hospice on 01476 513542 for tickets in advance, or you can pay on the door tonight.
