A performing arts school has raised more than £1,000 for vital local causes and charities through its dazzling December shows.

Stagecoach Bury St Edmunds/Stowmarket brought in £1,000 through its show ‘The Sounds of Christmas’ at St John’s Church with the money split between HCPT and the church.

HCPT is a charitable organisation which supports young people and St John’s will use the money towards repairs to its roof.

In December, Stagecoach also performed Beauty and The Beast, which raised £275.46 for Cancer Research. This year marks principal Caroline Ranson’s 10 year anniversary and events lined up include Stagecoach Spectacular at The Regal Theatre on March 20 and a song and dance marking the Queen’s 90th birthday on June 18.
