Raising cash for children with cancer was a piece of cake for singers from Sheffield-based choir ChorusUK.

Members baked cakes and buns for choristers in return for a donation to the Parents’ Association for Children with Tumours and Leukaemia (PACT).

And their slice of action, along with other fundraising efforts, totalled £1,500, which was handed over to PACT trustee, Carl Thompson, by ChorusUK’s Musical Director, Andy Booth, at a choir practice.

Carl and wife Lindsey, of Hazelbarrow Road, Jordanthorpe, became involved with PACT, which has links with Sheffield Children’s Hospital, after their daughter, Ellie, then aged eight years, contracted acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in February 2011.

Ellie has finished her treatment and is now cancer free.
