DOZENS of young musicians attended a marathon sing-along session which swelled a charity’s coffers.

The Forum Music Centre, in Darlington, hosted the Thank You For The Music event, on Sunday (December 23).

A total of 44 singers took part in the event, which ran from 1pm to 11pm and raised £1,500 for Age UK’s Darlington branch.

An audience of more than 200 people watched proceedings.

Organiser Viveca Bradshaw described it as “a fabulous event”.
