Around two dozen young musicians aged four to 11 years old gathered at St John’s Church in Broadbridge Heath to perform for families and friends and raise money for charity in the process.

The youngsters performed on violin, cello, piano and guitar for their delighted audience, and as the majority of them were Stringbabies students, it was their first performance.

Stringbabies is a Horsham music service which specialises in teaching young children the violin, cello, or viola,

The event was part of a national annual Stringbabies appeal, which seeks to raise money for a children’s charity. Many of the students are also participating in sponsored practices.

The chosen charity this year is the Children’s Trust in Tadworth, which offers specialist care and rehabilitation for children with acquired brain injury and complex neurological conditions.

A total of £117.50 was raised for the Children’s Trust.

The concert was organised by Stringbabies creator Kay Tucker, who is based in Horsham, and she was supported by Stringbabies teachers Melanie Cornell and Sheraine Lynsdale-Nock and their 
pupils.
