The VivaVoices choirs' Christmas charity performances have raised £1490 for the Down's Syndrome Association.
The Norwich and Wymondham choirs raised the money after receiving donations from people who attended their performances.
Graeme Hopson, director of VivaVoices said: 'We are delighted to have raised so support such a good cause that helps the 40,000 people in the UK with Down's Syndrome lead full and rewarding lives.'
Since starting the choirs in 2009, VivaVoices have raised almost £31,000 for several charities.
The choirs welcome new members of all ages and abilities, with no audition to join and no need to read music.
