Aftershock Youth Group, based at St Mary's Church, Saffron Walden hosted 60 guests at a charity dinner and soiree to raise money for Jimmy's in Cambridge.

Two young comperes introduced piano and trombone performances, an acoustic duo, a quiz, a comedy sketch and a vocal soloist.

Barry Griffiths from Jimmy's gave an update on the charity's work alongside volunteer Alison Morris.


The event raised more than £3,140 to support Jimmy's work helping the homeless.

St Mary's youth worker Matt Williamson said: "Aftershock would like to extend a massive thank you for all those who came and supported this year's Jimmy's Meal and gave so generously.

"A big thank you also has to go to Tracey Nicholls and Helen Nash for the amazing cooking and to our extremely talented young people who served and entertained the guests."
