A GROUP of kind-hearted Scarborough music students have raised £487 for a good cause.

The youngsters from Innovation Music School in St John’s Road recently put on two concerts at Scarborough Spa Theatre to raise money for NDCS - the National Deaf Children’s Society.

More than 150 children from the school performed in the two shows, a matinee and an evening concert.

Sarah Buckby, music school administrator, said: “The children put on two great shows with a variety of performances on piano, keyboard, guitar, drums and singing.

“The evening concert was attended by the deputy mayor of Scarborough who presented certificates and awards at the end of the night to those students who had recently passed exams and shown effort and achievement during the year.”

The concerts were organised to support Scarborough woman Suzie Marsden Hendrick, who ran the London Marathon this year to raise money for National Deaf Children’s society.

She chose the charity as they have helped her three-year-old son, Austin, who is moderately deaf.
