Community choirs from across Norfolk and Suffolk have raised £1,670 for Children with Cancer UK.
VivaVoices choirs raised the funds through Christmas carol concerts performed by choirs in Wymondham, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket.
Graeme Hopson, choir leader, said VivaVoices has a personal connection with the cause.
He said: 'We chose this particular charity because the four-year-old daughter of Emma Preston, one of our choir members, was sadly diagnosed with leukaemia in August and will require chemotherapy for the next two years.
'I'm delighted we've raised so much for such a good cause and I'd like to thank all the choir members and everyone who came to support our concerts.'
