Having been chosen by Sing! Choirs director Kathryn Rowland to represent the region as part of the charity’s country-wide choir, the children were given the chance to record at Ely Cathedral during half-term.

Those involved were Anya and Freddie, who are both 13 and in Year 9 at Soham Village College, 11-year-old Noah who is in Year 7 at Ely College, and 10-year-old Annabelle who is in Year 6 at Ely St Mary’s Junior School.

Their solo performances were then aired as part of Friday night’s fundraising broadcast on the BBC which raised more than £37 million.
