Talented performers put on a variety show for charity in Saffron Walden.

Journey Through Performance and friends entertained around 100 people at a fundraising event in Jubilee Gardens on Saturday, August 14.

Eighteen people took to the bandstand to perform for three hours during the showcase.

Although free to attend, organisers were raising money for The Maddi Foundation and the charity concert raised more than £650.

Organiser Jonathan Scripps said: "The day was a great success and we raised £620 on the day through bucket collections and a further £70 on the JustGiving page.

"Everyone had a great time and it was great to meet Maddi and Carina. Maddi was smiling all the way through the acts, which made it extra special for the performers."

He added: "It was great to be back performing after a long time away.
