Adults and youngsters swapped clothes for pyjamas when they turned up for rehearsal at the Fenland Music Centre on Friday.

The change of outfits was part of the musicians’ bid to raise cash for the annual BBC Children in Need appeal.

A total of £45 was raised by the two orchestras which were practicing for the up-coming Christmas concert on December 5, the training orchestra and the community orchestra.

Music played included Disney favourites from films such as Mary Poppins as well as classic festive numbers like “White Christmas”.

Around 50 musicians attended the rehearsals which were split into two sessions at the March Community Centre in Station Road including one for beginners.
