Long before TV choirmaster Gareth Malone was extolling the benefits of group singing a Gorleston ensemble was harmonising its vocals.

Now Gorleston Community Choir boasts around 80 members who all sing together on a Saturday.

As well as fundraising themselves the group needs donations to support the venture - the latest of which has come from The Property People.

The company has handed over £100 from the sale of Maria Marshall and family's property to be donated to a charity of their choice.

Sally Hunn, a member of staff, was there to see Maria donate the cheque to Gorleston Community Choir of which she is a member.
